Badges and Uniform

Scouting is a uniformed organisation. When you join, you need to buy the uniform before you are invested (normally a few weeks after joining).

Beaver Scout Uniform

  • Turquoise Sweatshirt
  • Woggle, Group neckerchief (ordered and presented by leaders at investiture-£5) – Replacements for lost neckers are available from our leaders.
  • Turquoise Polo Shirt (Optional)
  • Dark Blue Activity Trousers (Optional)
  • Dark Blue Activity Shorts (Optional)

If you do not buy the optional dark blue activity trousers, then please come along in dark trousers suitable for outdoor activities.

As well as the uniform, there are optional waterproofs, fleeces, caps etc. which are not part of the uniform but can be purchased and worn for Scouting and non-Scouting events.

All items of uniform, including scarves and anything else that your child is likely to take off, should be clearly named.

Where to buy uniform and accessories?

Uniform can be bought online at the scout shop.

It can also be bought locally from John Lewis, Pretty Miss in Cwmbran and Macey Sports in Newport. Second hand uniforms can also be bought from Ebay.


Our Beavers take part in lots of activities that go towards various “activity” and “challenge” badges. Please sew them onto the Beaver’s jumper when your Beaver is awarded with the badges. Below is a diagram showing where they should go. Please note that the Welsh Dragon badges should be on the top of the shoulders facing forwards.

More information about the badge system can be found on the website.
