Scouts are the third section of the Scouting movement. From the first experimental camp for 20 boys in 1907, the movement now has an estimated 28 million members worldwide, and in the UK alone there are over 499,000 boys and girls involved in Scouting. An increase in adult volunteers means that more and more young people are now able to take part in their own big adventure.
The ultimate goal for a scout is to gain their Chief Scout Gold Award.
This is achieved by completing 9 different challenges over the a 4 year period. Some of these are done on their own, but more commonly they are done as group.
Along the way, scouts have the option of earning up to 76 activity badges – 15 of which are staged. This allows for scouts gain further experience/knowledge in that subject.
