How our programme works

 

Every young person in Scouting enjoys a balanced programme of activities, events and experiences, based around subject areas we call Programme Zones.

 

The zones vary slightly depending on which of our sections the young person is in, but they cover a huge range of activities, from outdoor and physical pursuits to community involvement, creative expression and learning about the wider world.

 

Together we help Scouts get the most out of their Scouting experience by including elements from as many zones as possible within the activities on offer. And, the older they get, the more input young people themselves have in their own programme.

 

It could be hiking in the dark; travelling across Poland with just a backpack and three friends or spending the first night away from home. Activities are an integral part of Scouting. But as well as being challenging physically, our activities help young people set and achieve goals and grow in confidence.

 

Badges and awards

 

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 are themed around the zones of our balanced programme.

 

And the top awards?

 

Each section has at least one Chief Scout's Award; ranked bronze, silver, gold, platinum and 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.
