Camp Blanket

As each YP moves up through the sections they will gain many badges along the way, most of which will be sewn onto their uniform. Others will be occasional badges commemorating certain campsites and events they have taken part in. Instead of just putting them away in a drawer to get dusty and forgotten, why not sew them onto a camp blanket that can be taken to camps to keep them warm at night and to show off what they  have been getting up to?  Activity and Challenge badges can also be added as the YP moves from one section to another.
