TY2TT Challenge

Scouting at home, the 'Taking You To The Top' challenge helps our young people to continue to progress towards their Chief Scout Awards for their section.

Please note: these activities should be supervised by parents/carers at all times, and are not subject to The Scout Association's Policy, Organisation and Rules. These activities are completely voluntary and each parent/carer should determine if they are suitable for their children.

We have also made available a document which provides safety help for camping at home; click here to download.

This is a six-week programme to support our young people to continue to work towards their top awards, in each Section. Each week we will publish ideas and activities for our young people, to take part in under the supervision of their parents or carers. 

These will be similar to our CRE8 challenge, with all Sections covering the same theme, but will have different activities to compliment each Section.  We will be focusing on challenge awards and activity badges to enable young people to work towards completing elements of their top award.

Taking You to the Top will be released weekly on a Saturday, starting on 23rd May and will run through until 4th July 2020. Each weekly theme are as follows:

  • 23rd May: Skills
  • 30th May: Creative
  • 6th June: Fitness
  • 13th June: Adventure
  • 20th June: Outdoor
  • 27th June: World

Share which activities you take part in with your Section Leaders, so they can track your progress towards your top awards.
