What is a Camp Blanket?
Camp blankets are used to keep you warm around a camp fire and as an extra blanket to keep you warm at night.
They are also somewhere to keep your badges that you can no longer wear on your uniform.
Camp blankets become a record of your achievements and places you have been.
In the old days Wolf Cubs and Boy Scouts, as they were then called, would also decorate their blankets with ‘woodcraft’ signs.
What Can I Put On It?
Some people collect badges as a hobby. Some people prefer to only put the badges they have earned and badges of places they’ve visited on to their camp blanket. You Choose!
All your Joey badges
If you have belonged to another Scout Group before this one you can also put your old group neckerchief on it.
Cloth badges from places you have visited.
Proficiency badges from swimming, athletics, gymnastics etc.
When you go up to Scouts, all the badges you earned in Cubs.
