Activity Plus Badge, for the child who has gone the extra mile.

Activity Plus Badge for all sections. Postage from £1.28, next day delivery available.

If there is an activity you’d really like to do more of (here is a scout book explaining all the badges)? If you have the highest level of any of the badges, the Activity Plus badge could be your next big challenge.

Your leader can award it if you have done really well in an activity. Your leader can also award you if you’ve tried hard and done more than what was expected of you.

You can also earn the Activity Plus if you’ve taken something on even though you don’t have the best facilities available.

To earn an Activity Plus badge you need to:

hold your chosen activity badge
agree a target with your leader before going for the Activity Plus badge. It might mean you have to take part in some more training or practice to help you learn more.
show your leader that you have met your target.

Here are a few examples of targets for Beavers:

For the Gardener Plus badge, look after your garden or allotment for a further three months. Depending on the time of year, either plant or harvest different types of plants. Explain how you know they’re ready to plant or pick.
For the Cook Plus badge, prepare and cook another three dishes and serve them as a meal.
For the Animal Friend Plus badge, help to care for an animal for a further six weeks. Explain why you give it the type of food and exercise that you do.
