Joining in Award post 2008 Badge
These badges are not section specific. They recognise the length of time a young person has been a Member of the Scout Movement, rather than as a Member of any individual section.
Presenting the awards
In the Colony, up to two Joining In badges can be earned.
The first would normally be presented one year after the Beaver Scout has joined the Colony.
The award acknowledges and celebrates an active involvement in a Balanced Programme.
Some Colonies award a Joining In badge around the time of a Beaver Scout's birthday.
Wearing the badge
There is no requirement to remove the previous Joining In Badge when a new one is presented.
