Scout Awards

Membership Award

Once you make your promise, you’ll be given this badge, along with your Membership Badges for District/County/Name

Top Award – Chief Scouts Gold Award

This is the highest Award a Scout can earn, and its something to work on one step at a time – throughout your time at Scouts. You’ll need to complete all of the Challenge Awards, as well as any six Activity badges (including Staged Activity Badges)

Challenge Awards

Completing the Challenge Awards pushes you out of your comfort zones and challenges you to do more, learn more and be more. See what’s on offer and start your journey to the top.
There are 9 of these in Scouts – Adventure, Creative, Expedition, Outdoors, Skills, Personal, Team Leader, Teamwork and World

Activity Badges

There are loads of different activity badges in Scouts that can be worked on, you’ll complete a lot of these at Troop Meetings, but you can work on them at anytime – just talk to one of the Leaders.

Joining In Awards

These celebrate every year you spend with us. You can earn up to 4 of these in Scouts, and they are different colours!

Other Awards

There are also awards for Leadership (Senior Patrol Leader / Patrol Leader / Assistant Patrol Leader) and between 13 1/2 – 14 1/2 you’ll start working on your Moving on Award to become an Explorer Scout.
