You first need to complete the 'Vacationers Guide To The Outdoors' quest, clean up the surrounding area and tap on the compass and rucksack in the middle to start. There is only one option of 2 hours 30 minutes and only one Sim can do it at a time. Once the time is up, there will be an exclamation mark above your Sim's head; tap on it and you will receive a badge.
There are six levels within the hobby and different rewards.
|4||Off Road Hiker||S750|
|5||Trailblazer||10,000 Town Value|
|Water Collection||Food Gathering||Medicinal Herbs||750XP|
|Compass Navigation||Map Navigation||Star Navigation||2,000XP|
If completed within the time limit of 7 days and you have earned all 12 badges (shown above in the table), you will win the picnic basket (shown above). If you don't, you will instead unlock the suspension bridge, lookout post and bird feeders to build instead. After finishing the hobby multiple times, you will earn 3 Lifestyle Points.
