Now when a Scout excels in outdoor participation, there are new awards to show for it! This program, conceived by the National Camping Task Force of the BSA®, includes a series of five badges designed to recognize a Boy Scout or Varsity Scout who has exemplary knowledge and experience in performing high-level outdoor activities.
The award consists of five emblem segments positioned around the perimeter of a beautiful center emblem. All are embroidered in full color.
The segments represent five areas of emphasis: Riding, Hiking, Camping, Aquatics, and Adventure with rigorous requirements to earn each segment. The center emblem features an outdoor scene with fleur-de-lis and the words "National Outdoor Awards" and "Boy Scouts of America".
