Squirrels All Around Us Challenge Award

Squirrels All Around Us Challenge Award

All Around Us badge

Learn about where you live, meet some new people, and discover more about your community. It’s time to find your place in the world.

How to earn your badge:

  1. You don’t have to go very far to learn something new. Start local and explore where you live. Find out about the places in your community, what they’re for, and who might go there.

    You could talk to someone like a police officer, lifeboat crew, firefighter, youth worker, or nurse.  

  2. Being a Squirrel Scout is all about doing your best and being kind and helpful. Think of some ways you could help other people or your local community and give some of them a go.

    You could do something to help the environment, help a friend, or help out at home.  

  3. Did you know that you’re part of a bigger Scout family? Learn about the different sections in your group or talk to another group somewhere else in the UK.

    You could do an activity together, learn their favourite game, or find out more about what they do at Scouts. 

  4. There are groups of Scouts all over the world. Find out some facts about another country and take part in an international activity.

    You could contact some Scouts in another country, try some new foods, or make a model of something from another country.
