SCOUTS - Be Prepared

Heritage

The Scout must pass the requirements in one of the following alternatives.

Alternative A

Over a period agreed with the assessor, be involved with others in a project that helps preserve an aspect of national or local heritage, for example, steam railway, archaeological site, historic monument or museum.

Alternative B

Over a period agreed with the assessor, be involved with a group that keeps traditional entertainment alive. Take part in at least one public performance, for example, clog dancing, folk singing, musical group or band.

Alternative C

  1. Complete a study of an aspect of national or local heritage or history.
  2. Mount a display, exhibition or presentation of their work. This could be a custom or craft, the history of a building or the life of a famous person from history.
The assessor would expect them to spend about twelve hours on their chosen option.
