The educational programme is divided into four different age levels. Beavers (age 6 to 8), cubs/brownies (age 8-10), scouts/guides (age 10-16) and rovers (age 16-24). The scouts do programme activities in patrols and gain skills and practical knowledge according to their age level. The scouts experience a steady progress in their personal development. After concluding single activities within the programme scouts receive activity badges. In addition the scouts can engage in different themes and thus receive theme badges.
Guides and Scouts spend much time in the outdoors all year round. Exploring the wilderness on foot, on skis and in canoes and boats, as well as learning how to use a map and compass are important activities. It is also important for the scouts to know how to light a campfire and to prepare their meals on an open fire all year round. Mountain climbing, walking on glaciers and building snow caves are also challenging, but typical activities for the scouts.
