Pioneer Badge and Cord
The Pioneer Badge is the first of the three major badges in Scouts. This badge is designed to be achieved by undertaking new experiences, learning from and participating in practical and adventurous activities.
To gain this badge, a Scout must complete the two compulsory Pioneer Targets (Campcraft and Citizenship) and one of the six elective Pioneer Targets. These elective targets include Water Safety, Air Activities, Construction, Emergencies, Environment and Water Activities.
This badge can be achieved through participation with your Patrol or with other Scouts and with assistance from your Patrol Leader or Assistant Patrol Leader.
In order to gain the Pioneer Cord you must also complete one Pioneer Patrol Activity and two Pioneer Proficiency Badges. There are 31 different Proficiency Badges to choose from over a very wide variety of areas.
