The highest award available to Cubs is the Chief Scout Silver Award. At 11th Spen Valley we’re honoured that two of our fantastic pack members have achieved this prestigious accolade. The two young people have both displayed exceptional hard work and consistent effort in attaining the necessary badges and challenges, as a requirement of the Chief Scout Award. It is also a huge testament to the teamwork and leadership within our group, who have given encouragement and guidance in attaining the various badges.
Cubs are aged from 8 to 10 ½ years old, and therefore have just over two years to achieve the six demanding Challenge badges which lead to the Chief Scout Award. The six Challenge badges are the Creative Challenge, Community Challenge, Fitness Challenge, Global Challenge, Outdoor Challenge and Promise Challenge. Each require a range of detailed accomplishments and must all be earned within their time as a Cub.
