About this project: 

Back in 2017, the UK Scout Network launched a Year of Adventure and encouraged Scout Network members to take part in a range of microadventures. Successful members were awarded monthly virtual participation badges and those who took part in 6 or more earned the Year of Adventure virtual badge.

'A microadventure is an adventure that is short, simple, local, cheap – yet still fun, exciting, challenging, refreshing and rewarding.' - Alastair Humphreys.

February 2022 will commemorate 20 years of the Explorer Scout and Scout Network sections, and to help countdown to this, we plan to relaunch a Year of Adventure, and give our current Scout Network members the chance to take part in a range of new microadventures and earn the Year of Adventure virtual badges.

So how do you take part and earn the Year of Adventure virtual badges?

  1. Request to join this project on the UK Scout Network website.

  2. Declare your intention to take part, by posting the Relaunched Year of Adventure calendar on social media and include #NYSNYoARelaunched

  3. Encourage other Scout Network members to take part.

  4. Request to join the monthly events and earn the monthly badges.

  5. Take part in 6 or more to earn the Year of Adventure virtual badge.
