Chief Scout Award

A new Chief Scout Award (linked with the Bronze Gaisce Award) was launched in 2010 as part of the ONE Programme. We hope to have our first recipents of the new CSA soon.

A Scout should be in their final year in the section when they begin the Scout Chief Scout Award; however, they must be at least 14 to begin the Award.

  • One Special Interest Badge from the “Skill” Area
  • One Special Interest Badge in the “Physical” Area
  • One Special Interest Badge from the “Community” Area
  • One Special Interest Badge from the “Environment” Area
  • Two Adventure Skills to Stage 4; one Adventure Skills to Stage 6
  • Expedition: Walking 25 -35 km over 2 consecutive days and one night
  • Residential/Intercultural: Shared activity with a group in a residential/camp setting for 4 days and 3 nights, must include an intercultural aspect and a community project

A minimum of 10 months duration.

Note: A Special Interest Badge for the Scout Chief Scout Award must involve at least an hour a week for 13 Weeks for Skill, Physical and Community. Also, an additional 13 weeks must be completed for one of these Badges. The Environment Special Interest Badge should involve a similar a time commitment to the other Badges but it can be spread over a shorter time.

Chief Scout Award (CBSI)

The Chief Scout Award was the highest award a Scout could get. After working their way through the Pathfinder Award Scheme (The Tracker Award, Explorer Award, Star Scout Award and National Scout Award), Scouts took on a personal project. It is estimated that about only 1 in every 300 Scouts achieve the award.
