Badge Placement

As a Beaver, Cub, Scout & Explorer you will have the opportunity to gain any of the badges available to you from the 3 areas which are the Activity Badges, Challenge Badges and Staged Badges.

If you feel you may have completed any badge in or outside of Scouting and it has not been recognised, please discuss it with a Leader.
