How to earn your badge
Before you attempt this badge you need to hold the Scout section Hill Walker Activity Badge or have completed at least five one-day journeys in the hills, each one at least 14 kilometres’ distance.
All journeys and the expedition should have a defined purpose, like reaching a summit or completing a trail – so not just walking some distance.
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.
