The journey continues
If you were a Beaver, Cub or Scout, you'll already know that being a Scout is all about completing awards at every step of the journey.
As an Explorer, there are more chances to soar than ever before, as you'll be introduced to a whole new range of Top Awards.
You can work towards as many awards as you like, at your own pace.
Are you ready? Let's get stuck in.
The Chief Scout’s Platinum Award is the culmination of everything you do as a young person in Scouts. It's a chance to celebrate your progress, and take stock of how far you've come.
For more information on the Chief Scout’s Platinum, Chief Scout’s Diamond and Queen’s Scout Award, download the Reach the Top guide for Explorer Scouts, Scout Network members, Leaders, and Commissioners.
The Explorer Belt is the challenge of a lifetime. Explore untrodden ground over a ten-day period, test your limits and get to grips with a new culture.
Once you've made your Promise, you'll earn your Membership Award, featuring an image of the fleur de lis. This is the international Scout symbol, worn by Scouts all over the world.
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.
Eventually, it’ll be time to embrace your next big adventure. Get ready for Network: our fifth and final section for 18-25 year olds.
At Scouts, young people learn how to speak up and take the lead. That’s what the new YouShape Award is all about.
