They care by helping those around them.

What badges do Cubs have?

Cub Scouts can gain a wide range of badges and awards.

Every Cub wears a set of badges to identify themselves.

They have a Membership Badge to show they are in Scouting, a District and County Badge along with a group Name Tape to show which Scout Group they come from.

Every now and then there are special events that allow you to wear a special badge for a short period of time.

These normally stay on your uniform for around a year.

When the time comes to remove the badge you can add it to your collection.

Many Cubs keep a collection of badges and may even add them to a ‘camp blanket’
which makes a good talking piece when you wear it around the campfire.
