Cubs Naturalist Activity Badge

Cubs Naturalist Activity Badge -

Cubs Naturalist Activity Badge

Available each year from April to the end of September. The Badge takes about 2 hours to complete but this is dependent on the numbers attending. The Pack is usually split into 3 groups and they work their way around the bases which are:

  • Stream Dipping and recognition of what has been caught
  • Bug hunting and identifying
  • Trees/fruits of trees/leaves/bark rubbing 

The badge and a drink are included and there are games related to the badge if time permits.

There is no need to prepare the Cubs for this badge, however a little knowledge from the leaders could be helpful as they will accompany the Cubs around each base. 

Advance booking essential. Times for the evening are 6.30pm to 8.30pm with a minimum of 10 Cubs. Weekend times are by arrangement.

The cost of 5 per Cub includes refreshments at the end, together with the badge and a Pack Certificate of Attendance.
