Take on the Outdoor in 24 challenge
There’s lots to do in 2024, including our Outdoor in 24 challenge.
The aim is to get Scouts outside, so we’ve put together a list of 24 exciting things to do outdoors.
It can be completed throughout the year to earn the Outdoor in 24 blanket badge. We’ve included some suggestions on this page, linked to our Scouts Activity Finder, but you can complete each activity however you want to.
Or, why not use our blank bucket list and come up with your own challenge to complete for the badge instead? You could complete 24 new outdoor activities, have a sleepover over for 24 hours, or learn 24 new skills. It's up to you!
