Badges and Awards

The Beavers work towards various activity and challenge badges, which contribute to their Chief Scout Bronze Award. There are badges for a huge range of activities including snow sports, archery, athletics, creativity, cooking and even computer coding!

Once your child has been to a few meetings and has learned about Beavers, they will be invested into the Colony. This is when they will need their own blue Beavers jumper which can be bought online from the Scout Store. During the investiture ceremony your child will be presented with their green necker (scarf) and the core badges. The badges should be placed as per the diagram above.

Moving up to Cubs

Between the ages of 7½ and 8½, it's usually time for Beavers to move up to Cubs which meets on Fridays 18:15 - 19:30.

Moving on to Cubs is a really exciting time, but you might also feel a little sad about saying farewell to some of your fellow Beavers. This is an understandable reaction to change and it’s okay to feel nervous and unsure.

In the run up to your last night at Beavers, your Beaver leader will talk to your new Cub leader – who you may have already met during joint activities. Together, they’ll make the move as easy as possible for you.

Although most Beavers move up to Cubs between the ages of 7 ½ and 8 ½, leaders can be flexible in cases where a Beaver may need a bit more time due to additional needs or exceptional circumstances. Generally, they'll also have a think about when your friends are moving, and time things so that you can start your new adventure together where possible.
