To earn your Personal Challenge, you must :

Complete two personal challenges that you agree with your leader.

  • You should choose one of the challenges and your leader will choose the other.
  • The challenges must be different to the ones that you did for your Beaver Personal Challenge Award.
  • The challenges should be things that you find difficult, but can complete with some effort and commitment.
  • They can be to do with any part of your life, for example home, school or Cubs.
  • A good time to try to earn this Award is towards the end of your time in the Cubs and before moving onto Scouts.
  • You should discuss the possible personal challenges that you will try with your parents and your Leader, or a Young Leader, before you start them.
  • Remember, your challenges  should be individual to you, and be part of ‘growing up’.

Here are some example challenges to help you think about what you could do. You don't have to pick a challenge from this list, you should choose to do something which is personal to you.

  • Look after a new Cub for half a term
  • Talk about a topic you are interested in with an adult you don’t know very well


  • Bring the right equipment to Cubs every week for a term
  • Remember to brush your teeth twice a day for two weeks
  • Show good behaviour at Cubs for three weeks in a row
  • Try something new that you are a bit nervous about
  • Go to a District fun day and talk to some other Cubs you don't know
  • Try all of the food on Cub camp
  • Remember to feed your pet every morning for a week
  • Help to look after a sick or disabled friend or relative
