Do we get a badge for sewing on badges?
There is a range of badges and awards available to young people in the Beaver Scout Section.
Beaver Scouts can work towards badges at meetings and at home. If you think your child has completed the requirements for a badge, you can bring in a short note (preferably signed by a coach/team leader/or teacher) detailing their achievement, and we can award the badge.
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. Some Activity Badges are Staged, meaning that young people can gain a new badge for each new level they accomplish.
These are well worth looking through at home, as Scouts may be able to qualify for Swimmer, Sports, or Musician Activity Badges for example – just show their team coach or teacher the badge requirements, and ask them to write a short note to say that they have completed that level.
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. These badges will most likely be completed with the Colony, but can also be awarded to individual Beavers for work done elsewhere.
Chief Scout’s Bronze Award
Are you up to the challenge? The Chief Scout’s Bronze Award is the highest award available to a Beaver Scout. To ge it you must complete all six Challenge Badges plus four Activity Badges. It’s hard work, but we know you can do it!
