Staged Activity Badges
Staged Activity Badges
Staged activity badges allow Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers to develop skills and experience in such a way that they can build on previous experience to move forward. When you move up to the next section (such as from Beavers to Cubs or Cubs to Scouts), you should sew any of these badges onto your new uniform.
It is worth mentioning that, while some of these badges can be done at home, there are quite a lot that need to be completed as part of the Colony, Pack or Troop. Also, the nature of some of these badges means that they are perhaps more suited to Scouts and Explorers than to Beavers and perhaps Cubs.
Having said that, if you are interested in any staged activity badges, please ask your Leader.

‘Level’ Staged Activity Badges
These staged activity badges have specific requirements, just like normal activity badges. However, once a given level has been earned, the Scout can attempt the next level if they wish. This will entail a new set of requirements, and will generally be up to a maximum of level 5.

‘Counter’ Staged Activity Badges
These staged activity badges are slightly different in that they do not have specific requirements. Its all about participation. Each had specific ‘levels’ to reflect the number of times a Scout has taken part.
Camps, sleepovers and other residential experiences (including trips abroad) have always been a big part of Scouting.
