Great Indoors Challenge

CRAI Scouts' Great Indoors Challenge


Our Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and Volunteers have been absolutely amazing over the past few weeks. We've been staying at home, protecting the NHS, and saving lives! Well done you!

We also know that many of you have been getting on with your badge work whilst at home, with various packs that your Section Leaders have been sending you. We've seen OSM open up their abilities for leaders to do set badge work remotely, The Scouts (UK) have launched 'The Great Indoors', and we've also hiked to the moon and raised a ton of money for good causes! Well done you!

We've decided to reward your hard work with a special award called the 'CRAI Scouts Great Indoors Challenge'

We are going to set a new challenge every 3 weeks (on a Friday) which we are looking for you to do at home, and then to send in to us at CRAI Scouts. We will make sure that your section leaders get to see your good work, but will also be issuing a badge to those who participate in a minimum of 3 challenges.

As well as this, you will get a staged certificate showing how many challenges you've taken part in:

  • Stage 1 - Complete 3 challenges
  • Stage 2 - Complete 5 challenges
  • Stage 3 - Complete 7 challenges


The details of the current challenge will be available on this page, and details of previous challenges (in case you need to catch up) are here
