Where do they all go?
There are some changes ahead with regards to badges. The Challenge Badges are changing not only in design but by name as well. There are also some new Activity badges coming along and they will take the place of some of the older ones. So we are in a transition period with old and new badges so you may see these reflected on the Beavers uniform.
Many of the badges available are activity badges, which allow Beaver Scouts to show their progress in existing pursuits, but also to try all kinds of new things and form new interests.

Gaining a challenge badge involves accomplishing a number of more ambitious tasks within the Colony or community. There are several challenge badges across a number of themes, from the physical and outdoorsy to challenges dealing with the local community or issues connected with the Scouting world.
In addition, there are a number of core badges, obtained upon joining or moving on from the Colony, or for time spent in the Scouting movement.

Some activity badges are sponsored by outside companies, and these companies often provide extra exciting resource packs to help Beaver Scouts towards gaining their badges.
