Activity Badges

See which badges you have earned with the Pack on our badge progress chart

Scroll down to access badge information sheets for each of the Activity Badges or download a complete copy of our badge book.

There are 36 Cub Scout Activity Badges (the red ones) and a further 14 Staged Activity Badges (the blue ones), all of which are worn on the left sleeve of your jumper. You can also earn the Activity Plus badge by agreeing additional targets to take any of the activities you enjoy even further.

The Cub Scout Activity Badges are specifically designed for Cubs. The Staged Activity Badges can be completed by members of any section and have multiple levels, becoming increasingly difficult (Hikes Away, Nights Away and Time on the Water badges are different as these are awarded for participation). If a Cub has already earned a Staged Badge while at Beavers, this can be worn on his Cub Uniform; similarly, Staged Badges earned at Cubs can be worn on the Scout Uniform.

Cubs can work towards the Activity Badges at any time, though there are some that we complete during Cub meetings, trips and camps and we would therefore request that they do not attempt these at home (as they will find the badge work meetings less interesting).



Cub badge book

All Cubs are provided with a badge record book when they join the Pack. This contains all of the badge requirements and space to record what they have completed. You can download a complete copy of the book if required. If you lose your copy you can also buy a further copy for £5 - please speak to Akela! Cubs should keep this book in their folder and bring it to every meeting with them.

You can also download individual pages from the book by clicking on the relevant badge below. If you would prefer to print and complete the sheets that's fine!

If you work towards a badge, tick off the activities that you have done, get a parent or other adult to sign if necessary and then bring along your book (or printed sheet), together with any supporting evidence, for a Leader to check before the badge is awarded.

Where the badge is one that we complete at Cubs this is noted on the information sheet and there is a space for leader sign off (it is up to individual Cubs whether they get their book signed).

PLEASE NOTE: badges marked with a * are provided for information only. Please do not attempt these badges at home as we do them at Cubs; we will not sign off these badges if attempted at home unless pre-agreed for good reason!
