Jaffa

By partnering with Jaffa, we want to generate knowledge and enthusiasm amongst our young people on the benefits of healthy eating, how fruit is grown, and where it comes from.

 

Jaffa encompasses three core values: ‘Happy, Healthy, Honest’. By partnering with both the Beaver Health and Fitness badge, and Cub Our Skills Challenge Award, Jaffa aims to reinforce healthy habits, giving young people a chance to develop to their fullest potential.

As well as sponsoring our Beaver Health and Fitness Activity Badge, and the Cub Our Skills Challenger Award, Jaffa will also provide you with:

  • A range of resources to support the badge
  • A Jaffa voucher

 

Paddle the Amazon

We're going to be paddling the equivalent of the length of the Amazon river, a total of 4,000 miles! 

The #PaddleTheAmazon challenge will run for the whole month of July 2021 and we hope to get as many young people paddling through out the month as possible. The event is open for Cub age upwards (8+).

If you don't wish to paddle on water, there are paddle themed activities listed below that you can complete instead. 

Get involved and help us reach the end of the Amazon river
