The activity badges and challenge awards for each section cover a wide range of topics and skills. The badge requirements are versatile and can usually be completed in numerous ways They can provide a great basic structure to a section meeting programme or series of meetings if the badge requirements are relatively detailed. It may be best to designate the full section meeting to completing the badge, or it could be that each week for a half term the section completes one badge requirement and spends the rest of the meeting taking part in other activities.
Some badges are sponsored by corporate partners, who produce activity packs containing programme ideas and activities to help you complete the badge requirements. Activity packs can be found at scouts.org.ukl prepared
