Baden-Powell Challenge Award

The Baden-Powell Challenge is the highest award that a Guide can achieve.

In order to complete the award a Guide will need to take part in a Baden-Powell Adventure. Guides should have completed at least 8 of their 10 challenges to attend an Adventure.

Adventures are organised by Counties, Regions and Girlguiding activity centres ICANDO, Blackland Farm, Waddow Hall and Foxlease. Visit their websites for full information of upcoming Adventures.

9th-11th February 2018 – Challenge Weekend at Cherry Green Trees, Roestock Lane, Colney Heath

The Division of Finchley and Friern Barnet is in the midst of arranging this special BP Challenge Weekend for all girls who are working towards this Award. Indoor accommodation at Cherry Green Trees one of our local campsites has been reserved for the weekend. It has recently been given a major face lift and is now quite modern. For more information on the campsite please visit the website.

We are intending to meet on the Friday night after the girls have had supper at home, time yet to be decided. We are in the middle of arranging a suitable exciting programme for the girls over weekend. We will be with the girls for the whole weekend. This is the only such weekend we have found that is suitable in terms of location and timing i.e. after exams, before half term and Easter Break and availability of campsite. .

The cost of the weekend will be no more than £40
