The Zodiac Award encourages outdoor nights away experiences including camping, bivouacs, and expeditions in different – and sometimes unusual - environments at different times of the year.
It encourages and challenges Scout Troops, and Explorer Scout and Scout Network Units to camp more frequently in unfamiliar environments and for different durations.
There are four awards - Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum - that each require a different number of night’s away experiences and each experience has to include at least one Zodiac Award Challenge.
The Zodiac award is a phenomenal challenge. It's great at encouraging Explorers to come up with new and innovative ways to camp and I'm constantly surprised by some of the weird and wonderful suggestions that that they have!
