Degrees of Freeze

When camping in the cold weather scouts can accumulate “Degrees of Freeze” points. One point is obtained for every 1 degree below 32 degrees that a scout sleeps outside. When a scout reaches 100 Degrees of Freeze points they earn a special patch which can proud display their achievement.

The graph below shows the accumulated Degrees of Freeze points as of March 2020.
