Badges

We aim for all Scouts to achieve the highest award that we can give, The Chief Scout’s Gold Award. To achieve this, each scout must complete the following:

Earn six activity or staged activity badges of your choice. They could be badges you gain outside of your normal meetings or ones you’ve achieved through your programme. A number of these awards have a time component to them requiring a scout to maintain a certain activity over a period of weeks or month. These cannot be completed on a normal troop night so we would ask that you work with your young person to help them gain some of these awards.

We may ask scouts to submit work for badges electronically. Also if you wish to send documentation supporting badge work completed outside scout electronically please send via email to Irwin badge work

DO NOT USE THIS EMAIL FOR ANY OTHER ENQUIRY AS IT IS NOT MONITORED AS OFTEN AS OUR MAIN EMAIL ADDRESS.

Some staged activity awards such as the nights away or hikes can be completed as part of the programme and therefore scouts should be able to gain 2-3 of these without any extra effort.

The must also complete the nine challenge awards. These are:

  • World Challenge Award
  • Skills Challenge Award
  • Creative Challenge Award
  • Outdoors Challenge Award
  • Adventure Challenge Award
  • Expedition Challenge Award
  • Teamwork Challenge Award
  • Team Leader Challenge Award
  • Personal Challenge Award

Most of these we do complete on a troop night or on nights away activities. We will however need to get scouts to complete some tasks at home. Again please support your young person to gain these awards.

If you think that your young person has taken part in activities outside of scouting that could go towards any award please speak to a member of the leadership team. We can often sign of the completion of awards by simply seeing supporting documentation from home, school or other organisations.
