The sweatshirt can be purchased from Banbury Scout Shop.


Core Badges

There are a number of core badges, obtained upon joining or moving on from the Pack, or for time spent in the Scouting movement. These include the Membership Award, Moving-on Award (Cub Pack to Scout Troop) and Joining-In Awards.

Activity Badges

Many of the badges available are activity badges, which allow Cub Scouts to show their progress in existing pursuits, but also to try all kinds of new things and form new interests. There are over 30 in total, so they can always find one that is of interest to them.

Challenge Awards

Gaining a challenge badge involves accomplishing a number of more ambitious tasks within the Pack or community. There are 7 challenge badges across a number of themes, from the physical and outdoors to challenges dealing with the local community or issues connected with the Scouting world.

Staged Activity Badges

The staged activity badges have been designed to provide a unified approach throughout the sections. There are 14 activity badges staged across the sections.

Chief Scout's Silver Award

This is the highest award available in the Cub Section, and is the badge all cubs are working to achieve by the end of their time as a cub. You achieve it by gaining all 7 Challenge Awards, as well as 6 Activity or Staged Activity Badges.
