Keas Award Scheme
The Kea Badge covers the first two weeks in a Kea Club. It is designed to give Keas a basic understanding of the section and introduce other Keas. It is awarded when a Kea is invested as a member of SCOUTS New Zealand.
Bronze, Silver and Gold Levels
There are three levels of the Award Scheme to be achieved whilst a youth member is in the Kea Section. The Award Scheme is based on participation and is not competitive.
The Bronze Kea Award is generally completed after 6 weeks. The Silver Kea Award is generally completed towards the end of the first year a youth member is in the section. The Gold Kea Award is generally completed towards the end of the second year a youth member is in the section.
Outline of Kea Award Scheme
Each level of the Award Scheme is based on the four programme cornerstones, and a number of activities need to be completed under each of these cornerstones.
