King's Scout Award ICV list

You’ll need to do six activities from the list, two from each section. You can include activities that you completed as part of the ICV list for the Chief Scout’s Platinum or Chief Scout’s Diamond Award. This means that if you have the Chief Scout’s Platinum Award, you only need to complete four more activities; if you have the Chief Scout’s Diamond Award, you only need to complete two more activities. 
 
An activity can’t count for this requirement if you’re using it for any other requirement of the award (for example, taking part in an international camp can’t be used for both a residential and an international requirement). 
 
We’re all about flexibility when it comes to the ICV list – you should be able to shape your own award and push yourself to develop in areas that you enjoy while developing skills and achieving things that make you proud. For a good place to get started, search ICV in the Activity Finder for activities to do with your Unit or another section. But remember, It's always best to check your plans with your mentor before you get started!
