Learn something new

Badgers follow a diverse and engaging programme and can take part in lots of different activities and experiences  

They discover and grow through our Super Badger Programme. This involves lots of exciting and hands on age-appropriate activities and adventures.  

Badgers work towards their Super Badger Award, choose from 15 subjects, where they can learn about everything from making their own ice cream, the human body, recycling, keeping safe and first aid. They can build and learn new skills and new experiences and become a young leader. 

There are five stage awards Badgers can earn. Earning these awards shows commitment and lets Badgers work towards something they can be proud of.   



Our leaders

Badgers are supported by highly trained, inspirational leaders to explore, challenge themselves and have fun. This is a volunteer role which means our leaders are extra special and really care about making a real difference to our Badgers.

Moving on 

When a Badger is approaching their 10th birthday, they will start their transfer towards becoming a Cadet. There is so much on offer for Cadets and the opportunities and experiences on offer will really help shape children into independent and confident individuals. Badgers are fully supported on this transfer period if this is something they really want to do. Remember, it's their choice.
