There is a range of badges and awards available to young people in the Beaver Scout Section.
Position of badges on uniform (Beaver Scouts)
This award has been designed to help Beaver Scouts understand the commitment that they are making when they make their Promise and become Members of the Movement and the Beaver Scout section.
This Award is presented to a Beaver Scout when he or she is invested into the Cub Scout Pack. The Investiture should take place on their first official meeting as a Cub Scout.
This award helps ease the transfer of a Beaver Scout to the Cub Scout Pack.
The badges are numbered and you can be awarded a new badge every 12 months, from the time you joined Scouting.
These badges are not just for Beavers, so you will be able to collect them as you go through Cubs, Scouts and Explorers. They recognise how long you have been part of the Scout movement.
You can get up to two of these badges while you’re in the Beaver Colony.
This badge is the highest award available in the Beaver Scout section.
It is gained by completing:
The staged activity badges have been designed to provide a unified approach throughout the sections.
There are six activity badges staged across the sections.
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 the activity.
A young person should always wear only the highest of each staged badge type that they have gained on the uniform.
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.
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.
