To take part, complete the Get Away from Home record card every time you go away for one night or more on a recognised guiding event. This could be a sleepover, camp, holiday or international trip. Once you have reached the required number of nights you can apply for the next badge.
A pin badge is available for 1, 10, 15 and 25 nights and a cloth badge is also available for these nights as well as for 1, 2, 5, 35, 50, 75, 100, 150 and 200 nights for display on camp blankets. Either the pin or cloth badge can be worn on uniform or displayed elsewhere if preferred. There are different colours for each milestone.
