Program & Badges


The Cub Scout program focuses on six activity areas: The Natural World, Outdoors, Creative Expression, Healthy Living, Home and Community and Canada and the World. Activities include:

  • Challenging hikes, weekend camps and outdoor activities
  • Water activities like canoeing and kayaking
  • Games and sports
  • Model-building
  • Music, storytelling and play-acting


Cubs can explore skills and knowledge in subjects they are interested in with Personal Achievement Badges. Badges are completely optional!

There are more than 16 badge areas in which Cubs can plan their own badge activities, do them and review them.

How to get a badge

Cubs select the area they want to do their badge in. They download the planning document [PDF] and create their plan for their badge. They complete the activity and then show a leader what they did as well as give their review of the process. Leaders will verify a badge has been achieved! Cubs can do more than one project for the same badge area.
