Enjoy climbing? Well as a Scout there is plenty of opportunity to climb more often! 

Scout Climber Badge

If you're a Scout already, then you are probably already aware of the Scout Climber Badge. If you're not a Scout, then why not? 

We often run Scout Climbers Badge courses at Lower Grange Farm, Maidstone, but we can run badge courses bespoke to suit your Scout Troop. Our badge courses held at Lower Grange Farm are £30.00 for the day

Take a look at our fact sheet, or read how to earn your badge:

  1. Show that you know the rope types used for rock climbing. Explain how to coil and maintain them.
  2. Show that you know how to fit a climbing helmet and harness and how to tie in correctly.
  3. Show you understand the calls used in climbing.
  4. Show that you know how to abseil down a face. It should usually be at least 10 metres high. Alternatively, you can take part in a climbing-like activity, such as crate stacking or high ropes, and show you know about the safety equipment used.
  5. Take part in four or more separate climbs. Your climbs should either be on artificial walls of grade 4+/5 or natural faces up to ‘difficult’ standard. You could do a mixture of both, using a different route for each climb. Either way, an experienced climber must supervise your climbs and evaluate your ability.
  6. Explain the safety rules for climbing on both natural and artificial rock faces.
  7. Show that you’re aware of environmental issues around climbing on atural rock faces.
  8. Explain how to care for the equipment you used. Also, explain what you should look out for when equipment is nearing the end of its life.

Go Climbing!

If you are a Scout or Leader who would love the opportunity to get your troop climbing, then please contact our administrator who will be able to help!
