The Chief Scout's Diamond Award is the highest of the Chief Scout's Awards and the final step before the King's Scout Award.
Joining In Awards celebrate every year you spend with us, starting from your very first day as a Beaver right up until your last meeting. As an Explorer, you can earn up to four.
