Anyone aged between seven and ten years old can join one of our many Badger Setts.
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.
Badgers usually meet once a week for around an hour and a half. Our Badger leaders are appropriately trained and follow guidelines to ensure young people are safe and get the most out of being a member of St John Ambulance.
All over the UK, we offer lots of fun and exciting Badger events, such as camping and outdoor activities, arts and crafts, and learning how to save a life.
