Do you enjoy camping under the stars, rafting a whitewater river, or hitting the trail afoot, on a bike, or even on a horse? Can you pitch a tent, find your way, and bandage an ankle using only materials in your pack? Are you prepared to do any of these in rain, snow, sleet, or heat? If so, the National Outdoor Awards are for you. There is nothing virtual about these awards—you can earn them only by demonstrating knowledge and experience in the outdoors The award consists of five emblem segments positioned around a center emblem. he segments represent five areas of emphasis: Riding, Hiking, Camping, Aquatics, and Adventure. This is no give-away award. It takes some hard work to earn each segment. You could be one of a handful in our council to get it! The good news is that most Scouts are already on their way to earning segments - just by doing what Scouts do! It just takes a little extra effort, and you can rock this cool award. Check out the requirements at the Scouting.org website.
