The Baden-Powell Challenge Award is the highest award a Guide can gain in the Guide section.
It is personally challenging and involves sustained effort over a period of time.The award has two parts: the ten challenges and the Baden-Powell Challenge Adventure.
A Guide should complete ten challenges of her choice, at least one of which should be from each of the programme zones of Discovery, Healthy lifestyles, Celebrating diversity, Global awareness and Skills and relationships.
For her other five challenges, a Guide can choose from any of the remaining challenges, or she can count participation in an accredited Association or Country/Region initiative. Up to two challenges can relate to a special initiative.
The challenges are listed in the syllabus which appears in the G file (code 6628), available from online shop or by contacting Trading Service on 0161 941 2237.
After completing the ten challenges the Guide can participate in a Baden-Powell Adventure. This is normally a residential event organised at Division, County, Country/Region or Association level.
