B17 Tracking

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


An outdoor activity that allows you to lead young people on a guided tour of your local area or around local parkland. Suitable for Junior years 2 and 3. Taken from the BB Junior Section Going For Gold Program pack and added to the Junior Pro Pack as Body B-17.


Open area to explore


This Achievement should be a progression from the 1st year Achievement ‘Treasure Hunt. The young person should be able to recognise at least six of the signs illustrated when placed out in a field or wooded area (or local park). The young person should be able to follow a route through suitable countryside such as a wood. The route should be marked out using special signs such as those illustrated. This Achievement could take the form of a game, where one group of members ‘sets’ the trail, and another group tries to find the first group, by tracking them down, following the signs.

Ensure adequate supervision is available
