SCOUTS


Every Scout likes to experience a good adventure with his friends, doesn’t he?! But it is also linked to your Personal Progression.

Our “personal progression” is the path chosen for us to make progress. It is a reference that lets you know what you have learned, what things you still need to learn, and how much you have grown and developed.


In the Scout Movement one learns in many ways:

  • Participating in diverse Activities;
  • In group activities;
  • In activities both inside and outside the Movement;
  • Doing things on a day-to-day basis, not by taking tests;
  • Performing activities successfully, but also when those activities do not occur as planned.

We register what we learn our learning with Progression Badges, of which there are four: Tracks, Trail, Course and Crossing, which is completed with the Golden Fleur-de-lis Award. Your Scout leader will let you know which progression badge you will receive after your “Introductory Period.”

  1. The “Introductory Period”: As one of your first tasks when joining the troop, you must accomplish a set of items that will allow for your integration into the Scout Movement. At the end of the Introductory Period you will go through the Integration Ceremony (if you are not already a member of the Group). In it you will receive your Scout Group neckerchief and your first Progression Badge. At this point you will also be able to do your Promise Ceremony and receive your Promise Badge. If you do not feel ready and want to wait a little longer, talk to your Scout leader.
  2. If your first progression badge received is the Tracks badge: To earn the Trail badge, you need to perform half the activities offered for Tracks and Trails.
  3. If you have received the Trail badge: To earn the Course badge – do 100% of the activities offered for Tracks and Trails.
  4. If you have received the Course badge: You must complete half of the activities offered for Course and Crossing, so you can receive the Crossing badge.
  5. Completing all the activities offered for Course and Crossing, you will earn the Crossing.

And before you are ready to make your transition to the Senior Scout, how about earning the Golden Fleur-de-lis Scout Award?


You also have the opportunity to earn many other badges:

  • Such as the skills and proficiency badges;
  • Special Interest Badges – World Environmental Insignia, Southern Cone Insignia, Lusophone Insignia, Community Action Insignia, Learning Insignia;
  • Program Insignia – Explorer, Steward’s Assistant, Aviator;
  • Shoulder cords – Green and Yellow, and Red and White;

Let’s go to the check list to be a Golden Fleur-de-lis Scout:

  • You have completed all activities listed in the Scout Adventure Guide – Direction and Crossing;
  • Have received the Red and White Shoulder Cord;
  • Have received one of the following Special Interest Badges for the Scout section: World Environmental Insignia, Lusophone Insignia, Southern Cone Insignia, Community Action Insignia, or Learning Insignia.
  • Have at least 10 nights of camping with your Scout Patrol or Troop.
  • Have earned one of the Scout section Program Badges (Aviator, Steward’s Assistant or Explorer).
  • Be especially recommended by Scout leaders and the Troop Court of Honor.

If you want to know more about personal progression, we recommend the “Scout Adventure” guides. There are two books, one for the Tracks and Trail stages and another for Course and Crossing. In them you will find all the information necessary for your progression. Oh, and there is one more detail: If you’re part of an Air or Sea troop, you will have an extra set of activities to complete, which is specific to your Program and is listed in the final part of each guide.

Many of the activities proposed in the guides can also be considered when completing requirements of various skill and proficiency badges. Check out Skill and Proficiency Badges on our website and chat with your Scout leader.


SENIOR SCOUTS


The Senior Scout or Guide is the one who faces challenges responsibly with friends, all the while still worrying about his or her Personal Progression.

Participation in activities and projects not only can be fun, it also helps us learn about various topics of interest to us and to make progress.

Personal Progression is a reference that allows you to know what you have learned, what things you should still learn, and how much you have grown and developed.


In the Scout Movement one learns in many ways:

  • For participation in various activities and projects;
  • Interacting with other people;
  • With activities inside and outside the Movement;
  • Doing things on a day-to-day and not taking tests;
  • Performing activities and projects successfully, but also when activities and projects do not happen exactly as we planned;

We track our learning using progression badges, which are Climbing, Conquest, and Azimuth. Your Scout leader will let you know which progression badge you will receive after your “Introductory Period.”

Introductory Period: When you join the Senior/Guide Troop, the first step of your personal progression is the Introductory Period, in which you will accomplish a set of items that will allow you to integrate more quickly and efficiently. At the end of the introductory period, an Integration Ceremony will take place and you will receive your first progression badge in addition to the Scout Group neckerchief. If you came from the Scout Troop, you will not be given the neckerchief because you will have already received while in that section.


The Senior Scout Personal Progression steps are Climbing, Conquest, and Azimuth:

  1. If you have received the Climbing badge: To receive the Conquest badge, you must perform 1/3 of the activities offered, i.e. 25 activities.
  2. If you have received the Conquest badge: And wish to receive the Azimuth badge, you must perform another third of the activities offered, or 25 more activities.
  3. By completing all activities, you earn the Azimuth badge.

And before you are ready to make your transition to the Pioneer Branch, how about earning the Homeland Scout Award?!


In addition to the steps listed above, you also have the opportunity to earn other badges such as:

  • Skill and proficiency badges;
  • Special Interest Badges – World Environment Insignia, Southern Cone Insignia, Lusophone Insignia, Community Challenge Insignia, Learning Insignia;
  • Efficiency Shoulder Cords – Senior Challenge Shoulder Cord and Golden Shoulder Cord;
  • Program Insignia – Aeronaut, Naval or Bushcraft.
