Did you know that as well as hiking, healthy eating and camping badges, our Scouts can develop skills in IT, PR and mechanics?

Our activity badges allow Scouts to demonstrate their progress in various pursuits, and help them to form new interests. They are usually awarded when a young person has completed a challenging yet achievable set of requirements.

We also have a number of Challenge Awards, which focus on more ambitious tasks.

And the top awards?

Each section has at least one Chief Scout’s Award, ranked:

  • Bronze
  • Silver
  • Gold
  • Platinum
  • Diamond

Many older Scouts also complete the various parts of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, or go on an expedition to gain their Explorer Belt.

The Queen’s Scout Award marks the pinnacle of effort and achievement for Explorer Scouts and Scout Network members.
