Note Scouts Australia have recently launched a new program and this information has not yet been updated.
ACHIEVEMENT BADGE SCHEME
Achievement badges give you the opportunity to concentrate on your areas of interest. There are 34 badges to choose from.
Each badge has two levels, Level 1 (easy) and Level 2 (harder) and the Cub chooses which level they would like to achieve.
There are four groups of Achievement badges consisting of the following badges for each:
Arts and Literature
Art and Design; Entertainer; Handcraft; Handyworker; Literature; Masks and Sculpture; Musician; Photography.
Nature, Science and Technology
Animals and Birds; Bushcraft; Codes and Signals; Engineer; Flight; Gardener; Information Technology; Naturalist; Scientist; Space; Weather.
Sports and Recreation
Athlete; Canoeing; Collector; Cooking; Cyclist; Fishing; Pets; Sailing; Sports; Swimmer.
Citizenship; First Aider; International Culture; Traveller; World Friendship.
Remember that to achieve the Grey Wolf Award, four Level Two Achievement Badges must be earned, one from each of the four groups.
The Athletes Level 1 badge is the only badge that must be completed before you can attempt the Athletes Level 2 badge.
You only wear the highest badge on your uniform.

As well as the Achievement Badges, you can earn a number of special interest badges. You will need one of these for your Grey Wolf Award as well. These badges are:
- Landcare Badge; Local History Badge; Waterwise Badge
