We try to explain how you earn or justify getting each badge in the shopping cart items themselves with a creative description.
It is an honor system- no one is keeping track for you or you need not earn “x” amount a year like the Girl Scouts. Usually you are with other members who share in the action or event or it just happens spontaneously (like the “Camping in Bad Weather” badge).
No checklists to follow to achieve- very loose parameters.
When some earn and accumulate them, they display them proudly on camp chairs, banners, jean jackets, windows, etc… Members need to purchase them from our store shopping cart.
Members even buy them for each other as gifts knowing someone earned one. Fun.
