NEW Dragon Award



The Dragon Award recognises the importance of outdoor nights away experiences for our Young People. These experiences include camping, bivouacs, and expeditions in different, challenging and sometimes unusual  environments throughout the year.

This Award encourages Scout Troops, Explorer Scout Units, Scout Network and their Leaders to camp more in unfamiliar places. This Award recognises the contribution camping makes to building successful teams and the effort young people and their leader teams make in achieving our top awards.

There are three Dragon awards - Bronze, Silver and Gold that each have different challenges built around achieving the top awards and having fun.

For each award you must camp in every month of the year and this can be spread over several years. There is no time limit for each award.

The awards were redesigned in 2019 by the ScoutsCymru Programme Team. If you are working towards the old scheme the information can be found here, you have until the end of February 2020 to complete the award under the old scheme. 

In our recent review of the Dragon Award we had a fantastic response generating a lot of ideas for the new Dragon Award. The ScoutsCymru Programme Team would like to thank all those who contributed and hope you can see your idea in the new Award. The team hope you enjoy the new Dragon Award and your nightsaway and camping experience scouting in Wales.
