Mission Two


In order to show you have learned from the training, you must also complete all 4 missions. These may sound like massive tasks but if you are taking an active role in your section then you might have completed them already!

Below it explains what you have to do to complete this mission as well as how to get it signed off.

What you have to do

Plan and run an activity (not a game) with the section you are volunteering with.

The activities should include:

1. planning and organisation

2. gathering any equipment or materials needed

3. delivery

To complete this mission, you could:

o choose an activity badge to run as part of the programme, providing all of the information and materials required for the section to achieve this

o run a segment of the camp programme, such as a pioneering activity or obstacle course, planning the route for a hike, initiating some team challenges, or organising and leading a campfire

o record the ways in which your section’s programme activities could count towards different badges and awards

o run an activity for the section, relating to one of your own hobbies or interests

…any other ideas, subject to agreement with the ESLYL and SL. This could be done in a virtual section meeting too!


To show you have completed these tasks we ask you to write a little bit about your experience in the Mission 2 page of your logbook and photograph it. If you don’t have a logbook then for the activity you choose, please make notes on:

+ date
+ location
+ badges/awards worked towards
+ activity instructions
+ equipment needed
+ self evaluation of how it went

Once you have done this, you should follow the process below.


Make sure you are confident with having completed this mission. If there are any parts you are unsure of, you can contact your District Explorer Scout Leader (Young Leaders).

You should now click ‘Complete Mission Two’ and fill in the yellow form. Then email your activity evidence to your District’s YL leader. If your District have activated “Badges at home”, click on ‘submit to OSM’ instead.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
