Explorers Activity Plus Badge

Think you've gone as far as you can go? Think again. Take your greatest badge achievement to the highest level.

How to earn your badge:

  1. Hold your chosen activity badge.
  2. Agree a target with your leader before going for the Activity Plus badge.

    A few example targets could be:

    • For the Fundraising Plus, raise a further £500.
    • For the Paddle Sports Plus, gain the British Canoeing Paddle Power Explore levels 8 and 9, or the British Canoeing Paddle Power Excel.
    • For the Climbing Plus, gain a personal or leadership permit for this activity, and continue to develop your climbing skills for an agreed period of time.
    • For relevant Plus badges, gain a personal or leadership permit, or an NGB qualification for the activity.


    A PLUS badge can be awarded for any Explorer activity badge, apart from the following: Athletics, Community Impact, Hikes Away, Nights Away, Time on the Water.
    When an Activity PLUS is awarded for a Staged Activity Badge it can only be awarded against the highest stage of that badge.
