Rolling Programme PDF Print E-mail
Written by Ian Mitchell   

At Genesis Scouts we have a three year rolling programme that revolves around the Challenge Badges the Scouts can undertake. We do one badge per term, with three terms a year. This means that after three years a Scout will have had the opportunity to obtain every Challenge Badge, setting them up perfectly to achieve the highest badge a Scout can achieve, the Gold Chief Scouts Award.

The table below shows the rolling three year term model in detail.

Challenge Badge Activity Badges Typical Camp
08,11,14,17,20,23,26 Spring Skills Athletics Physical Recreation Sports Enthusiast Weekend Camp
Summer Outdoor Camper Pioneer "Survival Skills" Summer Camp
Autumn Teamwork/Leader Chef Craft Entertainer Weekend Camp
09,12,15,18,21,24,27 Spring World Forester Global Conservation - Weekend Camp
Summer Adventure Climber Cyclist Mechanic Summer Camp
Autumn Teamwork/Leader
Camp Cook Campsite Service Naturalist Weekend Camp
10,13,16,19,22,25,28 Spring Personal Fire Safety Writer Heritage Weekend Camp
Summer Expedition Hiker Hill Walker Navigator Summer Camp
Autumn Creative World Faiths My Faith - Weekend Camp

In the table above you will notice that we have identified Activity Badges as well. These are aligned to the Challenge Badge, and to give some variety to the programme we will select one or two of these to also complete within the term.

Additionally we have a four year rolling summer camp model, where we offer the scouts different types of camping experiences each year. The rolling four year summer camp model is as follows:
