Collector Activity Badge

This badge was updated on 26 January 2018, to include top tips. The requirements themselves have not changed.

How to earn your badge

  1. Spend at least six weeks making a collection
  2. Show your Colony or Lodge a sample of things from your collection
  3. Tell others in your Colony or Lodge about your collection. What is your collection? Why do you collect these things? What is your favourite thing from your collection?

Top tips

Examples of collections could be stickers or cards of your favourite sport or characters, items from nature such as rocks or shells or memorabilia from activities you’ve undertaken such as badges or medals or from places you’ve been such as postcards, magnets or keyrings.


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
