International Activity Badge

These badge requirements were updated on 26 January 2018. The previous badge requirements can still be used until 31 January 2019, to allow for transition where necessary.

How to earn your badge

  1. Learn a song, play a game or perform a dance from another country.
  2. Find out about Beaver Scouts, or younger Scouts if they don’t have Beaver Scouts, in another country. What do they call themselves? What’s their uniform like? And what do they say for their Promise? Find out as much as you can.
  3. Play a game to match flags and their countries. Use facts about the countries to help you find the right flag.
  4. Try different kinds of food from another country. Vote for your favourite dish and explain why.
  5. Learn how to say hello and goodbye in a language other than your own.
