Scouts and Niantic have partnered to create fantastic activities to help Scouts explore their local area with the Scouts Local Knowledge Activity Badge
Exploring local areas is in the Scouts' DNA. Whether it's a hike, a trip or an activity, getting to know the area around the meeting place and beyond comes natural. However there are many landmarks or interesting places in the local area that can easily go unnoticed, especially when hidden in plain sight. This is why The Scouts have partnered with Niantic on the Scouts Local Knowledge Activity Badge to create some brand new activities to uncover lots of interesting facts about our local areas.
Whether working on map reading skills, creating new maps, taking photos or going on hikes, the new activities with Niantic will give Scouts a way to engage with their local area and earn their Local Knowledge Activity Badge.
