If you’ve enjoyed completing an Activity Badge, taking it further can be just as rewarding as trying something new. Go above and beyond the requirements and become an expert at something you love.
How to earn your badge:
Hold your chosen activity badge.
Agree a target with your leader before going for the Activity Plus badge.
A few example targets could be:
- For the Book Reader Plus, read at least another six books. Name the authors and tell your leader or other members of the Pack about them.
- For the Cyclist Plus, gain the Bikeability Level 3.
- For the DIY Plus, finish a DIY project that is more difficult than the example given.
A PLUS badge can be awarded for any Cub activity badge, apart from the following: Athletics, Athletics Plus, Community Impact, Hikes Away, Nights Away, Time on the Water. When an Activity PLUS is awarded for a staged Activity Badge it can only be awarded against the highest stage of that badge.
Show your leader that you have met your target.
Requirements can be adapted to suit each young persons abilities. See our guidance on flexibility.
