Hi there. I am looking for a list of badges that cub scouts can earn. I can look all over the Internet and I find a few here and there but I can’t seem to find a current list of them. Our program is wanting to expand and include them in our meetings, including the summer. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you very much.
Cub Scouts do not earn badges like Boy Scouts do, but there are a number of supplemental award programs they can work on. They should focus on rank achievements first, but these programs will provide an opportunity for some extra activities.
If you have not looked at the beltloops and pins in the Academics and Sports program, check those out. This program will be discontinued in May 2015, so this is a last chance to do some of those activities before the new Cub Scout program is rolled out.
If you are looking for a summertime program, I recommend working on the Cub Scout Outdoor Activity Award. You could build a whole summertime program based on the requirements for this award.
Another way to fit an award in with summer activities is the appropriately named Summertime Pack Award. This program recognizes packs, dens, and Cub Scouts who participate in activities over the summer.
Readers, what are your favorite supplemental awards for Cub Scouts?
