NEW Dragon Award

1st March 2019

We are delighted to announce the launch of the NEW Dragon Award!


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.

This 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.

The award encourages Scout Troops, Explorer Scout Units, Scout Network and their Leaders to camp more in unfamiliar places.  It 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.

Please click here to visit the new Dragon Award page on our website and to see the new version.

You can start the new award and challenges from 1 March 2019, with any challenges you have completed under the old scheme still counting towards achieving the new Dragon Award. 

If you have been working towards the old requirements you have until the end of February 2020 to complete the Dragon Award under this scheme.
