Chief Scout’s Silver Award
This is the highest award a Cub can earn. To complete it, you need to earn six Activity or Staged Activity Badges of your choice, as well as all seven of the Challenge Awards.
Challenge Awards are all about stepping outside your comfort zone. Try out something you wouldn’t normally be interested in. Take the lead on something that scares you. Along the way, you’ll unlock hidden talents and stand tall. There are seven challenge awards for Cubs:
- Our World Challenge Award
- Our Skills Challenge Award
- Our Outdoors Challenge Award
- Our Adventure Challenge Award
- Teamwork Challenge Award
- Team Leader Challenge Award
- Personal Challenge Award
Once you’ve made your Promise, you’ll earn your Membership Award, featuring an image of the fleur de lis. This is the international Scout symbol, worn by Scouts all over the world.
Joining In Award
Joining In Awards are given to Cubs who play an active role in their Pack. You can earn one every 12 months, which means you can collect up to three during your time as a Cub.
Within their Pack, Cubs are part of a Six. A Six is a smaller group of Cubs, headed up by a Sixer and a Seconder. Sixers and Seconders are older Cub Scouts who are chosen to take on leadership responsibilities, such as welcoming new people to the Pack or taking charge of a particular game or activity.
They wear leadership stripes to celebrate their hard work and make sure everyone knows who they are.
Between the ages of 10 and 11, it’s usually time for Cubs to move up to Scouts. Complete this award to get prepared for your new adventures.
