Scouts have nine Challenge Awards to complete, plus any six Activity or Staged Activity Badges. Scouts will spend up to four years in this section, giving them plenty of time to achieve all of these awards before they move up to Explorers.
One of the Challenge Awards for Scouts is the Expedition Challenge Award, where Scouts go on an expedition or exploration over two days. Whether this is doing an investigation in a new city, or a hike through the countryside, it’s a great opportunity for Scouts to develop their skills in planning and navigation. It also helps to prepare them for great adventures in Explorers, like doing their Explorer Belt.
The Chief Scout’s Gold Award is a great foundation to move forward with – top awards for Explorers and Network Members will tap into skills formed during time in the Scouts section.
