Scouts

Leaders Challenge award

20 September 2018

OK so we all know Scouting is too good for the young people of the District, so to make things a bit more exciting for our adult volunteers we are running a pilot for the Hampshire Leaders Challenge Award.

At the last County Scout Leaders Meeting it was agreed to pilot a badge for leaders to earn as they become more experienced setting them challenges to complete along the way. The Badge will have three stages and each stage can be earned separately (with the central fleur de lis being part of the first stage badge).
The idea is for the Troop Leader or GSL to manage the challenges and present each badge. [ Experienced Leaders can earn the badge by demonstrating that they have undertaken these activities over their Scouting career ]. Thoughts on the challenges are also shared below and any feedback is welcome to ADC (Scouts).
The requirements for the badge, as decided by the County PL’s forum are:
