Chief Scout’s Awards

Chief Scout’s Awards

Last updated: 26 March 2021

We already said that young people could complete their Chief Scout’s Award in their first term in their new section. Now, any young person whos started working towards their Chief Scout’s Award will have until December 2022 to complete their award, regardless of their age. If a young person moves into a new section, activities they do in the extended timeframe can count towards both awards. 

Where a young person turns 18 during this period, they must follow the rules and requirements relevant to their adult membership as a volunteer or a Scout Network member.
