There is a wide range of badges and awards available to the young people in all of the Scouting movement. Every young person in the group can work towards lots of different and varied badges.

Activity Badges (left arm)
Many of the badges available are activity badges, which allow the young people to show their progress in existing pursuits, but also to try all kinds of new things and form new interests.

Challenge Badges (right breast)
Gaining a challenge badge involves accomplishing a number of more ambitious tasks within the section or community. There are several challenge badges across a number of themes, from the physical and outdoorsy to challenges dealing with the local community or issues connected with the Scouting world.

Core Badges (left breast & right arm)
In addition, there are a number of core badges, obtained upon joining or moving on from the section, or for time spent in the Scouting movement.

We expect all members to wear full uniform for all meetings and parades unless otherwise instucted. This consists of navy utility trousers, the top or shirt that is relevant for their section, their neckerchief and woggle. Full uniform should also be worn when a member is travelling to and from an organised camp.
