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.

Do you work in Film, TV, Radio?
Does anyone have any contacts in film, TV or radio? We’d really love to organise the next BP Adventure around the creative industry in some way e.g. A back stage tour or an opportunity to use professional equipment or a workshop. If you think you could help source something for a Saturday (or Friday evening) in the new year then please contact Sue Rees.

The following opportunities are coming up:

28-29 April – BP Adventure ‘Codes & Mysteries’ at Gaddesdon Row Guide Centre

A ‘puzzling’ weekend where girls will get to use ‘their little grey cells’ and hunt clues, break codes and solve mysteries whilst making new friends and generally having a good time.

This event is for any girl who already completed at least 8 challenges for her BP Challenge. Places are limited and will not be confirmed until the permission form and payment has been received. No more than 4 girls from any one unit may attend the event.
