Scottish Scouts achieve Nights Away Awards

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2016

In Scotland, Scouts can work towards achieving the Zodiac Award. This award provides increased opportunities for Scouts to enjoy Nights Away experiences as well as adding some extra fun challenges into the Scout Section Programme, such as camping above 2000 feet or below 0 degrees!

There are three levels of Zodiac Award in the Scout Section – Bronze, Silver and Gold.
Ethan O’Neale from 48th Fife Scouts staying on Nightingale’s Ward was presented with his Silver Zodiac Award for camping at least one night a month for 9 out of the last 12 months. He attended the semi-finals of Regional Camping Competition and went to Fordell Firs which is one of three national outdoor activity centres and Scotland Scouts HQ. He also got his 35 nights away badge.
Ben Dykes also got awarded his 20 nights away badge, for which he attended a survival camp in Aberdeen where he dressed up as James Bond. Well done to both of you from Murray and the rest of the leaders at 48th Fife.
