Personal Challenge Award

Personal Challenge Award

This is a great badge to do from home:
  • The challenges should be things that you find difficult but can overcome with some effort and commitment.
  • They can be to do with any part of your life, for example home, school or Scouts.

How to earn your badge:

Complete two personal challenges which you and your leader agree on.

You should choose one of the challenges and your leader will choose the other. 

The challenges must be different from the ones you did for your Beaver and Cub Personal Challenge Awards. 

Here are some example challenges to give you some ideas, but make sure you choose to do something that is personal to you.

Leader Challenge

A very popular Leader Challenge is to record and produce a short video explaining and demonstrating what you like most about being a member of 4th Heswall Sea Scout Group.  You can do this using your own footage or media found on our website and social media platforms.

Below are some videos our Sea Scouts have produced and submitted.

Nature and the outdoors are languages that can be learned. Once you identify a beech tree, tie a clove hitch or cook a simple meal over a fire that you’ve built yourself, you’ll never forget it.'
