Badges & Awards

The Scouting programme enables the Scouts, Cubs & Beavers to gain various badges and awards. Below are the different types of badges and awards (2015 Programme) that can be gained in Scouting. The leaders will build as many of the badge requirements into the weekly programme as possible, but some of the badges can't be done in our sessions. Therefore, if you wish to do some of the badges at home please complete the comments form on the contact page and we will be able to send you the requirements for the badge.


Please click here to view a diagram showing the positions of the badges on the shirts and sweatshirts.


Some badges can be done at home using the factsheets on the following page

The Staged Activity Badges have been designed to provide a unified approach throughout the Sections.

All the Staged Activity Badges have different stages, some with 4 levels, others 5 and Nights Away up to 200. This means that a young person can gain whichever badge is appropriate to the level they have reached. It is possible, for example, for a Beaver Scout who is an excellent swimmer to gain a higher level badge than a Scout who has just taken up this activity.
