Pioneer Activity Badge

To achieve the Pioneering Activity Badge, you should complete the following:

  1. Build a scale pioneering model
  2. Take the lead role in building an outdoor pioneering project such as an aerial runway or an hourglass tower

During the lead role pioneering project, you should be able to demonstrate your personal skill of the following:

  • 10 knots, bends, or hitches
  • Four lashings
  • The use of simple blocks and tackle
  • Anchorages for firm and for soft ground
  • The understanding for the need for supervision during pioneering projects


Where applicable, badge requirements may be adapted or altered according to the abilities of a young person. Scout Association rules for adjustment can be found in the Policy and Approach article at the Scout Association website.
