Badges & Awards



Each Scout can achieve so much from scouting, they learn how to have fun, friendship and take pride in themselves. We reward the interests and actvities they learn from inside and outside of Scouts, this is done through a series of badges and awards.


Logo Scouts

The badges and awards are divided into 5 main Categories:

 Core Badges
 Activity Badges
 Staged Activity Badges
 Partnership Award
 Challenge Award


Each category has a number badges or awards within it. The Scout Leaders will help you to gain the core badges, Partnership and Challenge Awards through a balanced programme, but not so much the activity badges or staged activity badges as these are done in the Scouts own time, but we will provide guidance were necessary.
