Cub Uniform

Cubs wear a green jersey, the group scarf and a coloured woggle (color depends on which six they are in).


The Cubs can gain badges throughout their time in the pack, and the location of where the badges should be located on the uniform is shown in the picture below.  Following the picture is a brief description of some of the badges.




Membership Award:  The Membership Award is presented to the Cub when they are invested into the pack and shows that they are a member of the Scouting organisation.  It should be worn on the left breast.

Joining in Award:  These badges are awarded annually to Cubs who take an active part in the pack meetings throughout the year.  They are continued to be awarded throughout the scout group.  Only the highest numbered award should be worn.  This badge should be worn above the Membership award.

Activity Badges:  There are 33 activity badges for Cubs to achieve covering a number of different activities.  They are round, have a red background with a yellow border and should be worn on the left sleeve.

Staged Activity Badges: There are 6 staged activity badges which are common to Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.  This means that it is possible for the young person to gain whichever badge is appropriate for their ability.  It is therefore possible for a Cub to achieve a higher staged activity badge than a Scout.  Staged activity badges are round, have a pale blue background with a dark blue border and should be worn on the left sleeve.  Only the highest of each staged activity badge gained should be worn on the uniform.  These badges can be transferred to the young persons new uniform when they move up to Scouts.

Challenge Awards:  There are 7 challenge awards available for the Cubs to achieve and as the name implies are more challenging to achieve than the activity and staged activity badges.  They are square in shape, have a red background with a yellow border and should be worn arranged in a diamond shape on the right breast.

Chief Scouts Silver Award: This is the highest award for the Cubs and is a real achievement.  Six of the seven challenge awards need to be achieved by the Cub (Outdoor Plus Challenge Award is an optional extra) to gain the Chief Scouts Silver Award which is then presented at a special presentation evening.  This award should be worn above the Challenge Awards on the right breast and can be transferred to the Scout uniform on moving up.
