Try Scouts Badge


The aim of the Try Scouts badge is to encourage Cub Scouts, who are 10 years of age, to interact with their local Scout Troop by trying Scout section activities both at Pack and Troop level. The badge does not replace the Scout Link Badge.

The Badge is approved by the Troop Council and awarded by the Patrol Leader participating with the Cub Scout. The Badge should be presented at the end of the last activity. The badge can be worn on the right shoulder of the Cub Scout uniform.

All activities involving Cub Scouts must be supervised by appointed adult Leaders as usual.


  1. Take part in a Scout Troop activity for one day out of doors, or stay overnight with the Troop on an activity.

  2. Take part in a joint activity with the Scout Troop and the Cub Pack.

Please Note: The Cub Scout must be between 10 to 10½ years of age. They could then start the Link badge between 10 ½ and 11 years of age.

Badges are only available from the Port Kembla Scout Shop.
