  1. Go to Squirrels, get to know the leaders and the other young people, and find out what you’ll get up to.
  2. Discover the different badges you can earn and find out what happens at your Investiture (a special celebration that happens when you make your Promise).
  3. Learn your Promise and when you’re ready, get invested.
  4. Find out about the history of Scouts and the worldwide Scout family.
