It is gained by completing these 6 challenges;

  • The Promise Challenge
  • The Community Challenge
  • The Fitness Challenge
  • The Creative Challenge
  • The Global Challenge
  • The Outdoor Challenge

Plus Two of the following:

  • The Outdoor Plus Challenge
  • The Adventure Challenge
  • The Expedition Challenge
Here’s what they had to say about their achievements… 

Calum  – Enjoyed the Outdoor challenge the best camping with friends having a good time & chilling in the tents talking.  Easiest was the Community Challenge collecting paper & coffee morning.

Callum – Promise challenge a bit boring & Community was hard because you have to do loads, Outdoor was the most fun

Robert -  Most enjoyable challenge as climbing Cat Bells , he didn’t enjoy cleaning the tent very much, but mountain biking & going out & about are he found easiest

Lottie - Enjoyed Cat bells because it was high but was also her hardest challenge, didn’t enjoy kayaking – probably because her hair got wet or was it those darn Explorers!  She likes Scouts because you get to try thousands of new exciting things.

Frankie – enjoyed the rock climbing and found the hike his hardest challenge, the easiest was messing up the tent.

Callum – enjoyed the Adventure Challenge as he went on camp. Like the fun activities most, not so keen on the Outdoor as he had to do a lot of stuff.

Louise – the hardest challenge for Louise was the Outdoor because she finds it impossible to keep things tidy & there was lots of things to do. Louise enjoyed all the Challenges especially the Fitness because she likes sport & sleeping…

Phillippa -  found the Outdoor Plus the hardest as she can’t put up a tent very quickly (more practice required)! Creative was the easiest because we worked in teams and enjoys creating drama pieces; she enjoys coming to Scouts to see friends & have fun…

Matthew – has enjoyed the Adventure Challenge, the Promise challenge was the easiest if not the most enjoyable. He likes camping the most about Scouts
