Badges to earn
Most of the badges Beaver Scouts earn are achieved during our weekly meetings. However, there are some badges that they can aim to achieve for activities that they do at home.
There are some "Staged Badges" that Beaver Scouts can earn themselves: Digital Citizen, Digital Maker, Information Technology, Musician, Nautical Skills, Paddle Sports, Sailing, Snowsports, Swimming and Time on the Water.
Whilst we may include some of these in our programme, these badges are individual to the person rather than to a Scout-led activity, this means that a young person can gain whichever badge is appropriate to the level they have reached. It is possible, for example, for a Beaver Scout who is an excellent swimmer to gain a higher level badge than a Scout who has just taken up the activity.
