Tadpole badges are used by the Pioneer Scouts to mark progression through the Order of the Tadpole. They are earned by completing World Challenges set by Scout Leader Jaggy at the Pioneer Scout camp. Three badges are required for completing the Order of the Tadpole, and promotion to Possum Scout.
Tadpole badges are exchanged at Tadpole vending machines, automated vendors set up by the Pioneer Scouts to distribute Tadpole-themed items.
They can be found at certain Pioneer Scout locations such as Camp Adams and the Pioneer Scout camp (Camp Lewis). They are usually accompanied by Possum vending machines. The machines offer the following items:
|Tadpole vending machine|
|Pioneer Scout Hat: Tadpole||3 badges|
|Pioneer Scout Tadpole shorts||1 badge|
|Pioneer Scout Tadpole skirt||1 badge|
|Plan: Pioneer Scout banner: Tadpole||1 badge|
