Girlguiding Scotland Baden-Powell Challenge Award

Why this award?

The Baden-Powell award is the highest achievement a Guide can achieve. It is made up of 5 zones which aim to encourage participants to try new things and push their boundaries. The 5 zones are healthy lifestyle, global awareness, discovery, skills and relationships and celebrating diversity. To achieve the award participants must also complete an Adventure which is usually a residential event that encourages them to experience something outside of their usual experiences, allows them to meet other Guides completing the Award and celebrates their achievement.
