We’re very excited to announce the badge requirements for the Emerald Badge, for Cubs, as they join in the excitement of Damboree in 2019.
Carefully chosen to encourage, engage and challenge Cubs, and their leaders, by new members of the Damboree Team, Leigh P. and Ang H. We hope they will inspire you to plan your Damboree eventfor 2019, and maybe join in with your Beaver friends.
Below you will find the detailed breakdown of requirements, we’ve also updated and clarified some of the adult badges, Silvers and Golds too.
