Boy Scout Outdoor Awards


National Outdoor Awards for Camping, Hiking, Aquatics, Riding, and Adventure Link

Now when a Scout excels in outdoor participation, there are new awards to show for it! The award consists of five emblem segments positioned around the perimeter of a beautiful center emblem. The segments represent five areas of emphasis: Riding, Hiking, Camping, Aquatics, and Adventure, with rigorous requirements to earn each segment.




50-Miler Award

To recognize members who cover the trail or canoe or boat route of not less than 50 consecutive miles; take a minimum of five consecutive days to complete the trip without the aid of motors.




Complete Angler Recognition 

The Complete Angler recognition was established by the BSA’s National Fishing Task Force in October 2014 to honor well-rounded youth anglers. Scouts who have earned the Fishing, Fly-Fishing, and Fish and Wildlife Management merit badges can earn the new award.

Certification grants a Scout the right to carry matches and build campfires; Scout must show his Scout leader, or someone designated by his leader, that he understands his responsibility to do the eight requirements. Link


Historic Trails Award

To bring appreciation to the ideals, principles, and traditions that have made our country strong; requirements emphasize cooperation between historic societies and Boy Scout, Varsity Scout, and Venturing units, which should establish a close relationship with a local society as soon as possible when planning a historic activity—most communities have such societies.
