How to earn your badge:
Celebrate your commitment to Scouting.
These badges celebrate your commitment to Scouts. They're given out to those who play an active role in the group by getting stuck, giving things a go and setting a good example.
The badges are numbered, and you can be awarded a new badge every 12 months from the time you first joined Scouts. If you were a member of a previous section, the badge numbers will continue from those you have already been awarded.
These badges are not section specific. They recognise the length of time you have been a member of the whole Scout movement.
In Explorers, you can receive up to four Participation Awards - one for each year.
Requirements can be adapted to suit each young persons abilities. See our guidance on flexibility.
