Personal Achievement for Beaver Scouts

Personal Achievement Badges are designed to allow youth to explore and expand skills and knowledge in areas that are of particular interest to them.

In The Canadian Path, Personal Achievement Badges are strictly optional. They are not a core part of the program, and they are not an essential part of a youth’s personal progression. Personal Achievement Badges are not a requirement for any Top Section Award. It is recognized that activities outside of Scouting add to youth’s growth in the SPICES and to their personal progression. No one comes to Scouting as an empty vessel.

Working on Personal Achievement Badges allows youth to further develop individual interests and skills and to have that development recognized as part of their growth and progression within The Canadian Path.

Personal Progression

Some Beavers have different tail colours. There are Blue Tail, Brown Tails and White Tails. The colours match Beavers’ ages. They also match Beavers’ different roles in the Colony.

Personal Achievement Badges

Personal Achievement badges allow you to explore things that are special to you.

Look at the different badges. You are bound to find at least one that interests you. You can use the ideas for the badges you want to achieve, or you can use your own ideas.

Personal Achievement Badges for Parents:

Personal Achievement badges are designed to allow Scouting youth to acquire skills and knowledge in areas that are of particular interest to them, and to have that development recognized as part of their growth through Scouting. They give your child the opportunity to try something new, and to set achievable goals. Personal Achievement badges are generally pursued individually, and outside of weekly meetings. They can be pursued by Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts and Scouts.
