Left Sleeve – My Journey
This part of the uniform recognises your journey in Scouting through the Achievement Pathways.
Looking at this a bit deeper, the focus is on the Special Interest Areas for that section, as well as Outdoor Adventure Skills and any peak awards that may have been earned.
A young person may wear all peak awards they have earned during their time in Scouting at the top of the left sleeve. These are:
- Joey Scout Challenge Award
- Grey Wolf Award
- Australian Scout Award
- Queen’s Scout Award
- Baden-Powell Scout Award
Special Interest Area Badges
Scouts may wear all Special Interest Area badges earned in the section they are currently a member.
- Initially, these may form a hexagon, as viewed on the diagram.
- There is no requirement to complete a project in each of the six Special Interest Areas. A Scout will wear all badges indicating the Special Interest Area projects they have completed.
Outdoor Adventure Skills
These badges form a 3×3 grid on the left sleeve. Scouts should wear only the highest achieved Stage in each of the nine broad activity/skill areas – Bushcraft, Bushwalking, Camping, Alpine, Aquatics, Boating, Cycling, Paddling, Vertical
- Any Stage that is completed should be recognised with the relevant badge – it is more that not all badges will be worn on the sleeve.
- Outdoor Adventure Skills Stages follow a young person through their Scouting journey. As a result, these will need to be moved or changed over between uniforms.
Rover Scout Knot and Bar (for Rover Scouts only)
Rover Scouts receive the knot, a collection of five ribbons representing the five youth sections in Scouting, and Rover bar during their investiture ceremony, or transition ceremony, into the Rover Scout section.
- This is worn on the top of the left sleeve.
