What is the Investiture?

When you have been invested you will be a full member of Scouts. Being invested means wearing your uniform, making your promise and then being presented with your first badges and your neckerchief.

What do I need to know?

You will need to know:-

What are the Promise and Law?

Your Leader will discuss the meaning of this (and the Laws) with you before your investiture but follow these links to see what it is.

If you come from another Country, then there are special versions of the Promise just for you. Your leader will discuss this with you.

What will happen when I am Invested?

This varies between sections and each Leader has their own approach. You will be asked to make your Promise in front of the other members, but don't worry your leader will help you and REMEMBER every child and adult in Scouting has done this before you.

What Badges will I get and where do they go?

You will get the World Membership Badge, a badge showing you are from Havant in Hampshire, one telling everyone you are with the 3rd Hayling Scout Group and another showing which section you are with. Select the Badges box below and you will get all the details you need.

What happens now I am Invested

You can now start working towards the many badges and awards, but it is also now time to start paying subscriptions. Follow the boxes below to find out more.
