Our Beavers have lots of opportunities to earn their coveted badges; whether at a Colony meeting or while on holiday or camp!
Many of the badges available are activity badges, which allow Beaver Scouts to show their progress in existing pursuits, but also to try all kinds of new things and form new interests.
Gaining a challenge badge involves accomplishing a number of more ambitious tasks within the Colony or community. There are several challenge badges across a number of themes, from the physical and outdoorsy to challenges dealing with the local community or issues connected with the Scouting world.
In addition, there are a number of core badges, obtained upon joining or moving on from the Colony, or for time spent in the Scouting movement.
We also keep our young people motivated and recognise achievement with our own awards.
Our badges are presented at the end of our Colony meetings while all our Beavers are gathered with the Leaders. This really gives our Beavers a sense of achievement.
Encouraging our Beavers to work towards these awards is just the start of them learning skills that will last a lifetime.
