The five National Outdoor Badges recognize scout achievement in camping, hiking, aquatics, riding, and adventure. Each may be earned by a Boy Scout or Varsity Scout who "demonstrates both knowledge and experience" in one of the subject areas. Each badge requires the scout to earn First Class rank, at least two relevant merit badges, and extensive experience in the area "under the auspices of the Boy Scouts of America," according to the 2011 edition of Boy Scout Requirements. The National Outdoor Badges form the core requirements for the National Medal for Outdoor Achievement.
