Boomerang

Bronze: The Bronze Boomerang is the first part of your journey through the Cub Scout Award Scheme. To achieve the Bronze Boomerang Award you will need to complete 10 of the 14 set tasks. Tasks 1 to 7 must be completed but you can choose any three from the tasks numbered 8 to 14.  You may do the tasks in order, except for number 7 - Promise and Law - which must be completed last and be signed off by your Cub Scout Leader.

Silver:

If you join Cub Scouts around 9 years of age, you will probably start your journey through the Cub Scout Award Scheme with the Silver Boomerang.  However, if you joined earlier you would probably have completed your Bronze Boomerang and would now be entering the second part of the Boomerang Award - the Silver Boomerang.


The tasks in the part of the award are more challenging, but build on the skills you have already learned. To achieve the Silver Boomerang Award you will need to complete 10 of the 14 set tasks. Tasks 1 to 7 must be completed but you can choose any three from the tasks numbered 8 to 14.  You may do the tasks in order, except for number 7 - Promise and Law - which must be completed last and be signed off by your Cub Scout Leader.
