Being a Badger

Anyone aged 7-10 can join a Badger Sett, these are after-school clubs which operate across England. Badgers usually meet once a week for around 1 hour and 30 minutes.

Badgers take part in fun activities for different subjects, earning badges and certificates for each one. For every three subjects a Badger completes, they can receive a bronze, silver, or gold award.

Badgers can:

  • learn first aid
  • make new friends
  • get creative with arts and crafts
  • find out how the body works and how to stay healthy
  • learn about helping their local community
  • take part in team games
  • develop leadership and communication skills, and much more!
