    Seconder and Sixer Cub Badges

    My son proudly came home from Cubs yesterday having been chosen to be a new sixer. He wasn't even a seconder before so he is really chuffed. The problem I have now though is that I want to sew his badges on before he comes home from school but am not sure what order they go on the arm. Is the seconder badge above the sixer? Any offers?

    Bless you. I am chuffed with him as he hasn't even been there a year yet but to his credit his has attended every week as well as attending the camping weekends. I think every boy should experience cubs!! Fun Fun Fun. Wish I could join!!!

    thanks for trying. I did find this site before posting here but it didn't really help. From what I have seen on other sites, it appears I shouldn't be sewing both on anyway as it should only be the highest one on his jumper!!!????? I think I'll wait until he gets home from school and just ask him. I'm sure he'll know.

    There is a cub scout handbook it seems !!

    see this

    and this!

    From being a brownie, only put on sixer and with brownies it went below which group you were in, so mines went under my pixie badge.

    This is what you need:

    (BTW you only put the sixer badge on, the seconder badge can be sewn on his camp blanket).

    It's the same same site as my first link.

    As suggested above, the sixer rank supercedes the seconder rank so only the sixer badge is worn.

    You can't normally have been a sixer without being a seconder first, even for just a moment or two hence getting both badges. Good on him!

    Congrats to your son my son also goes to cubs i just wish they did a sewing badge first as i hate doing it oO Yuor right it's great for young boys, mines off to cub camp next weekend so its great for parents too, a few days off:p

    Hope he has a fun time. Mine went on a wet n wild weekend a fortnight ago and a more tradional type a couple of months back. If your son hasn't been on them before it is almost guarenteed that he will have fun. Be warned though. It's amazing how many parents comment that their son returns wearing the same pants they went in!!!!!! ps. I agree about the sewing. I've finished now but my youngest was invested as a Beaver last week so between the two I had 5 badges to sew on. Don't laugh but it literally took me a couple of hours - and they still aren't straight!!

    Sorry to thread hi-jack, but what's the youngest one for boys, and how old od they have to be to start?

    Beavers are the youngest group and it is for boys and girls aged between 6 and 8. At 8 they join Cubs. Hope you find a good group to join. The better ones may have a waiting list so it's always best to get their name on the list as early as possible.

    Oh I had no idea about a waiting list. Thanks for that, will research now!

    Chesso - sorry, but your post wasn't showing which is why I posted mine, didn't mean to upstage you.

    Penny Saver, the reason for waiting lists is that there aren't enough adults willing to help. You don't have to become a warranted leader, you can help on a part-time basis if you want. Not getting at you, but it amazes me how many parents are happy to dump their kids for 2/3 hours a week but refuse to help out in any way.

    @cis-groupie No problem at all. I only mentioned it as my link was working!!!

    I haven't quoted you here as 'quote' isn't doing anything just now.

    Delayed Post Appearance Syndrome is making threads ridiculous.

    lol at the sewing skills OP.:D
