Welcome to my home page. I'm here to help
you with your badge work. To get the most out of Cubs
you will need the Cub Scout Powerpack which tells you quite
a lot but you will need some extra help which you will find
on these pages. Eventually, you will find interactive
quizzes, word searches, useful worksheets for badges, details
of badge requirements and record sheets for your Challenge
On my page if the link is useful it will be pointed
to by my face instead
of the usual triangle. Just follow the links.
You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader so if you haven't got
it installed on your computer you can download it free from
here. You must ask the person who owns this
computer before installing any new software.
Not Invested Yet?
If you are new to Cubs and you want to be Invested quickly,
you can download the Membership
Award Record Sheet and start 'finding out'. You will need
to prove to a leader what you have learnt but it will help
to get you invested sooner.
You might like to try our Interactive
Scouting Quiz. It is also a learning experience because,
if you don't know the answer, you can click on the clue link
and you will be taken to a page that has the answer. Answer
all 20 questions correctly and get a personalised certificate.
Bring the certificate to Cubs and we can tick off part of
your record card. You could also earn points for your six.
There are 33 ordinary activity badges and 4
'staged' activity badges which you can earn on your own or
as part of a Pack activity. Before you attempt a badge,
discuss with your leader what you plan to do to make sure
that you are planning the right activities.
There are also 6 staged Activity Badges which
are available to Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. Get one of these
and you can wear the badge on your Scout Uniform when you
move on to Scouts.
Details can be found in you Powerpack or you
can find the details online.
Don't forget to discuss your plans with a leader
The previous record of 23 for the most badges
awarded to any Cub from the 1st Winchester pack was broken
during the summer of 2004 and now stands at 24. Can
you beat this record?

This is the highest award that you can receive
in as a Cub Scout. Your Powerpack tells you a lot about
this award and you should read it to find out more.
Basically, to be awarded your Chief Scout's
Silver Award, you need to earn the Outdoor, Global, Creative,
Community, Fitness and Promise Challenge Badges.
Some of these activities are included in our
meeting and camps but you will have to do some work
at home, they are challenges!
Please note: you do need to complete
2 nights away with Cub Scout in order to achieve the Chief
Scout's Silver Award.

You must do these Challenges to get your Chief Scout's Silver

The Outdoor Plus Challenge is
fun to do but it doesn't count towards the Chief Scout's Silver

There is no requirement to include all of the traditional
scouting skills. However, at the 1st the leaders feel that
young people should have developed certain skills; things
you would expect Cubs to do.
The following is a list of those skills. Most are fun activities
(often games) and it is intended that they should be done
at Pack meetings or on camp.
If there is a link, this means that you can do some of these
subjects on-line. This may be helpful if you have joined cubs
later than others or had to miss a lot of Pack Meetings for
