The Meerkat trail over two years goes through Bronze, Silver and Gold Stars. To gain these, a Meerkat has to earn all 17 Challenge badges and eight of the 18 Interest badges. At 1st Claremont, we cover the Challenge badges in meetings. Badges are sewn on the Meerkat’s hat – stars on top, Challenge badges around the centre and interest badges on the brim.
The Scout Wiki has more information on Meerkat advancement, the interest badges and where they should be worn.
