Scouts will participate in various events and activities, and can work towards over sixty activity badges, six staged activity badges and nine challenge badges, all which follow a balanced programme based on the six zones detailed below. Once Scouts have completed eight of the nine challenge badges, they are awarded the Chief Scout’s Gold award. The events calendar will detail forthcoming activities which have been arranged for the 150th Glasgow Scouts.
