Scouting at Home

Earn the S@H Badge!


We want to recognise and celebrate everyone across Greater Manchester North Scout County who continues their Scouting adventures by participating in Scouting activities at home throughout the COVID-19 lockdown.


One of the ways we are doing this is to launch a ‘Scout at Home’ badge for Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers, and Adults. Everyone who participates will be entitled to a badge based on the winning badge design (see the picture) when we return to normal Scout meetings. The GMN Scouts County Commissioner has given permission for this badge to be worn as an occasional badge in the appropriate place until the end of 2021.


Take a look below to see how you can achieve this unique badge!

Badges will be on sale from the County shop once you have met requirement 5.

For participants outside of the county, we’ll email you information on how to purchase the badge once they have been delivered.
