Hike, sail, fly and camp, get active, respect your environment, be a leader and team player, be inventive, experience the adventure.


Advancement and Badges[edit]

The Advancement Programme covers a wide range of activities for Scouts. These activities are completed as you progress up the advancement ladder from Membership through to Springbok, gaining Interest Badges along the way. There are also a number of Challenge Awards for Scouts who need an additional challenge.
