There will be no more cub scout badges for Ryan Kielar.

Not only does the 12-year-old have no more room on his sash, there are no more to earn since he already has all 50 badges, stars and awards the organization has to offer. 

Ryan said the pack specialty badge was by far the toughest. 

"I did letter boxing, which is geo caching and you have your own stamp and there's clues that you follow."

Ryan's father, Henry Kielar, who's also a cub scout leader is proud. 

"As a leader it's fantastic to see a cub scout take charge  and have a goal and work towards getting his badges, as a father I'm proud of him for sticking to it," he said. 

However Ryan admits, earning all 50 badges wasn't all a walk in the park, some were difficult to earn and others were just plain boring. 

"The computer badge wasn't that exciting," he said. "I just had to answer tonnes of questions about what parts of the computer and it wasn't very fun."
