This crest was earned by some youth in the spring of 2021 – who completed at least 5 of the 8 challenges.  

The crest comes in pieces and this picture shows the final product.

This crest can be sewn on camp blankets, clothing, wall hanging or kept in a keepsake box.

The Fall 2021 Challenge: Around the World in 60 Days

Posted by on Oct.12, 2021, under Beavers, Cubs, Group, Scouts

2021Over the next eight-weeks, our Sections will visit eight different countries, develop new skills through fun challenges and support their communities and the planet by leading exciting “Scouts for Sustainability” activities.

With the help of a symbolic transporting compass, Scouting members can ping around the globe to different destinations quickly.   In each country they are faced with a challenge or a fun activity to champion as a Section. Once completed, the Section can collect a crest for that week and eventually curate the full composite crest!

Each week, Scouting mmbers will acquire a “GADGET” in pursuing their adventures; these items will be used in the activity for Week 8: Contraption Action, so they will be holding on to their GADGETS!
