Awana Clubs Cubbies Find a Club

Basic Emblems and Awards for Cubbies Clubbers:

Note: Unless otherwise indicated, we will describe all emblem and award placement as if you are wearing the vest or shirt (i.e., left sleeve = left sleeve as if you are wearing the vest).

  • Hopper and Jumper Trail patches
    Cubbies receive the Hopper Trail patch for completing the Hopper Trail or the Jumper Trail patch for completing the Jumper Trail. Trails are at the beginning of each handbook. Sew these patches on the upper left side of the Cubbie’s uniform vest below the Cubbies emblem, one below the other in the order in which they finish the handbooks. All Cubbies should be in the same handbook on a given year. (Because the handbooks are used on alternate years, some Cubbies will have the Hopper patch on top, and others will have the Jumper patch on top. This is expected.)

  • Achievement emblems
    Cubbies earn these emblems by completing the 4 Lamb Paths and the 4 Elephant Walks in a particular handbook. (That’s a total of 16 achievement emblems for the two handbooks.) One emblem is awarded upon completion of each individual Path or Walk.
    *Please note: Attach achievement emblems as indicated by the silk screened figures on the right side of the Cubbie’s vest, beginning with the “C” the 1st year, and continuing on the “A” the 2nd year. (The “C” should be completed before the “A”.)

  • Year 1 Book Award
    Cubbies receive a mini stuffed Cubbie Bear for completing one Celebrations Handbook. Attach this award by Velcro® to the silk screened little “Cubbie” figure on upper right of the Cubbie’s vest.

  • Year 2 Book Award
    Cubbies receive a blue rosette and ribbon for completing both Celebration Handbooks. The Year 1 Book Award—the mini Cubbie Bear—fits onto the rosette.

Other Cubbies Emblems:

  • Church registration numbers (not an award)
    Center these numbers on the lower left side of the Cubbie’s vest. They should be about 1 inch from the bottom of the vest, and numbers should be touching.

  • Lion emblems
    Cubbies can earn these emblems for club attendance. Each club sets their own standards for attendance. (Leaders, be flexible here.) If your club chooses to use them, give them twice a year at the end of two equal attendance periods (so a total of 4 lions over two years). Sew them on the lower left side of the Cubbie’s vest. (They should be above the church registration numbers, if you use these. Otherwise, place them about three inches from the bottom of the vest. Be sure they are low enough to leave room for the second Trail patch.) These lions should be in between the zebra and giraffe emblems and the Cubbie Bear emblems, if these are earned, so leave room. Place second-year emblems above first-year emblems. (Over two years, all attendance awards and Cubbie Bear emblems together form two complete rows, from left to right as you face the vest: giraffes and zebras, lions and then Cubbie Bears.)

  • Zebra and Giraffe emblems
    Cubbies can earn these emblems for Sunday school or church attendance. Each club sets their own standards for attendance. If your club chooses to use these emblems, give them twice each year at the ends of two equal attendance periods (so a total of 2 zebras and 2 giraffes over two years). Zebras are for the Cubbies’ first year of club; giraffes, for their second year. Sew these emblems on the lower left side of the Cubbie’s vest. (They should be above the church registration numbers, if you use these. Otherwise, place them about three inches from the bottom of the vest. Be sure they are low enough to leave room for the second Trail patch.) As emblems are earned, line them up side by side to start rows from left to right as you face the vest, giraffes above zebras.

  • Cubbie Bear emblems
    Cubbies can earn these emblems for completing the Cubbies Character Builders in the supplemental books. There are 2 of these emblems; one for each year. Sew these emblems on the lower left side of the Cubbie’s vest, toward the right as you face the vest, the second year emblem above the first. They form the ends of the rows of attendance awards (Place them above the church registration numbers, if you use these. Otherwise, place them about three inches from the bottom of the vest. Be sure they are low enough to leave room for the second Trail patch.)
