"The future belongs to the curious. The ones who are not afraid to try it, explore it, poke at it, question it and turn it inside out."

Welcome to Curiosity Untamed where we encourage you to ask anything and explore everything!

Are you interested in insects? Have a passion for painting? A zeal for zombies? Well if so, we have a badge for you.  The Curiosity Untamed program offers thousands of badges in nine different Areas of Discovery and since our badges are pins or magnets, not patches, there is no sewing required! 

Let your curiosity run untamed and come explore the world with us.

I love everything about Curiosity Untamed - earning whatever badges the kids are interested in, not having to teach different things to different ages, the ability to strive for higher awards, the flexibility for 'quirky' kids, the support from headquarters and other parents... all of it!

How It Works

Each badge has a list of requirements that encourages participants to learn new skills, acquire new knowledge, take field trips,  and provide service to their communities.  While there are certain requirements that are mandatory to earn a badge, there are plenty of optional requirements as well to let each participant focus on aspects of the topic that interest them.  

Badges can be used in a variety

 

Nine Areas of Discovery

I love the fact that it is skill based, the large variety of badges, the lack of middle managements, the fact we get to pick the fundraisers and keep the profit, the teaching of character and patriotism, the support we get from the CEO, the feeling of appreciation that you do not get from other groups.

FAQ

No. Our badges are 1/25″ button style pins or magnets.  No sewing required.
No. All badge requirements are online only. We add new badges and resources every month and anything printed would be out of date very quickly.
All ages. Badges are designed for preschoolers through adults with requirements getting more difficult as you age. Whether you are 3 or 103 we have a badge for you.
Yes. Curiosity Untamed is a very flexible program and is designed to work with any program you may already have in place. Just keep in mind that while you can use our badges to supplement current scouting programs, adding a wide variety of badges and awards to your program, other organizations will not allow you to wear our badges and awards on their uniforms. Curiosity Untamed badges and awards may be displayed on a uniform that you design, on tote bags, backpacks, jackets, shadow boxes, magnet boards, etc.
No parent or leader can be an expert on everything their children will want to learn about. You are welcome to take a class and learn the skill yourself first, but don’t be afraid to seek help from your community as well. Let the members of your community share the joy of teaching your children something by offering their own expertise. Just as the kids should be trying to make their community a better place through service, give your community a chance to make the kids better people as well.
With the invention of the Internet, a variety of resources are now literally at your fingertips. Search our blog posts for a collection of articles supporting a wide array of badges. If you can’t find what you are looking for, just ask! We are always willing to help locate resources that will benefit our members. You can also take advantage of local people and businesses with talents, knowledge, and skills in the area you are looking to teach.
Depending on whether you choose pins or magnets, badges and awards can be displayed on a vest, tote bag, backpack, jacket, bulletin board, shadow box, the fridge, magnet board or any other method you choose.
