Anyone aged between five and ten years old can join one of our many Badger Setts, which operate throughout the country. At Badgers it's all about fun and adventure!

Badgers take part in a lively programme, working towards their Super Badger Award. The programme has been developed to enable young people to learn important life skills in a fun and safe environment.

Badgers can choose from fifteen subjects to help complete their award. These range from Creative and Active, to Healthy and Caring.

Once a Badger has completed their membership paw, they move onto their bronze paw, which is awarded after completing three subjects. A further three subjects will gain the silver paw and another three for the gold paw. A Badger becomes a super Badger when they have completed twelve subjects.

Badgers learn important first aid skills through their Super Badger Award and various first aid courses. Badgers can get a really cool black and white uniform which they can wear in the Sett and at some public events.

If you’re aged between 10 and 17 years old, you can join one of our Cadet units, which operate throughout the country. At Cadets it's all about fun, adventure and community.

Guided by youth leaders, Cadets take part in an interactive and full programme, working towards their Grand Prior Award. The programme enables young people to learn important life skills in a fun and safe environment, but with challenge and excitement appropriate to their age.

Cadets can choose from over seventy different subjects to help complete their award. These range from Fire prevention and Photography, to Sports and first aid.

Younger Cadets learn first aid skills through our training course for young people while older Cadets can undertake a community first aid or first aid at work course. Cadets can put their first aid and other communication skills into practice by providing first aid to the public at events or teaching first aid to other young people and adults.

Badgers meet on Wednesdays at 17:30 - 19:15
Cadets meet on Thursdays at 19:00 - 21:00

Both groups meet at Keynsham HQ, Rock Road.
