Hobbies Activity Badge

How to earn your badge

Choose one of two options. Then complete all tasks to achieve this badge.

Option 1

  1. Take up a hobby or interest that you do not already have an activity badge for.
  2. Keep a record of your hobby for a period agreed with a member of your leadership team.


Option 2

  1. Make a collection or study of objects over a period of time agreed with
    your leadership team. You could collect stamps, metal badges, teaspoons or bookmarks.
  2. Talk to a group about the collection or study you chose. Explain why you chose your objects.



Each young person who participates in the Programme, including badges and awards, should face a similar degree of challenge, and requirements can be adapted according to each young person’s abilities.  For more information and practical tips see our guidance on flexibility
