On Monday 7 November four more scouts from East Goscote were presented with their Chief Scout Gold Award. This is the highest award possible in Scouts and is only achieved by those scouts who put in considerable time and effort both in and out of scouting.
To achieve this award scouts must complete nine challenge badges which include organising and taking part in patrol camps, undertaking a 48 hour expedition carrying all their camping kit, completing three months of service in their local community, taking part in an international camp including meeting and swapping customs with scouts from other countries and completing several personal challenges. These challenges, along with the participation badges that must also be completed teach teamwork, leadership, an understanding of different customs and most importantly a belief that anything is achievable if you put your mind to it.
Well done Owen, Josh, Joe and Hannah – this is a moment to be proud of and we wish you well for the future.
Phil – Scout Leader
