Expedition Award

An expedition typically refers to a long journey or voyage undertaken for a specific purpose, often exploratory, scientific, geographic, military or political in nature.

In the BB, the Expedition Award is about learning to plan and reach far goals, mobility, simple overnight camps and other, related, small activities.

The requisite for the Expedition Award is some basic knowledge of First Aid, preferably a Basic First Aid Award, against any emergencies or injuries during the Expedition Practical Test.

The following are under consideration for inclusion into future programme.

The reasons for this are:

  • modernisation of programme for Members
  • inclusion of activities and skills not currently in the syllabus of the BBM
  • fun without being overly concerned over certification

Camping Award

The Camping Award is about living outdoors, planning, preparing, choosing basic equipment you will carry, using them, camping crafts that make camping fun, comfortable and memorable, cooking and preparing meals -- all done in the wild.

The Camping Award is one of BB's oldest Awards, started in the 1890's when Lord Baden Powell was an Officer of the Boys' Brigade. (Sir WAS was also with the Boy Scouts for a time, but our Founder decided to focus on the BB after putting some thought into it.)

We the BB owe it to Sir WAS and Lord Baden Powell, to maintain the tradition started more than one and a quarter centuries ago.

The Recruitment Award is a Compulsory Award that challenges Boys and Girls to grow in Planning, Organising and Executing an action geared towards their own effectiveness in achieving a target that involves a third party.  This Award also brings in new Members, and as we say, the more the merrier!

The purpose of Drill in the BB is to develop Discipline and Character, as intended by The Founder.  In the achievement of the proficiency required of this Compulsory Award, it is hoped that the Boys / Girls will grow into confident, self-disciplined leaders in different aspects of their lives.
