Cub Badge Form

Cub Badge Testing Form

How to Earn a Badge

Hey Cubs ... (and parents). We are introducing a new Cub Badge Testing Form.

When a Cub has completed the requirements for a badge, they need to:

  • fill in the requirements completed in their Cub Handbook
  • fill in the Cub Badge testing Form
  • bring their Cub handbook and Cub Badge testing Form to the next regular meeting and hand them into their Sixer during inspection

Each Sixer will hand in Cub Handbooks and Forms to the leaders table. One of the leaders will review the badge work with the Cub sometime throughout the evening ... and if all is well, a badge will be presented at the end of the night.


Cub Badges and Awards

Cub Badges and Awards are sorted into categories according to the Cub Stars:





Black Star Activities - The Natural World

Black Star Activities

Baden Powell always said that one of the most interesting things you can do is explore the world. You don't even have to travel to a far country. Baden Powell taught us that the best and easiest way to explore is to keep our eyes and ears open and notice what's going on around us. If you are interested in learning about nature, here's a good place to start. Black Star Activities will introduce you to the natural world and how it works.
