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

Deadline: 5pm  Friday 17th July 2020 (entries only accepted by uploading to  this link)

As you know, we've decided to reward your hard work with a special award called the 'CRAI Scouts Great Indoors Challenge', so this next challenge is to design the badge that all members that complete at least 3 of the challenges will be awarded. 


Important Instructions:

  • You can either design their badge on paper and then get a grown up to help them to take a detailed photograph of the design, or can design the badge on a computer and get a grown up to upload it
  • Design should be drawn on a circle with a 50mm diameter
  • Do NOT use the Scouts Fleur de Lis symbol within the design (we aren't allowed to use it on local badges)
  • It will be for all groups/sections
  • It should reflect the theme CRAI Scouts Great Indoors Challenge. 


To send us your pictures of your design, please click this link and upload them directly onto the system for us. We won't be able to accept photos sent by any other means, but if you have difficulty, send us an email at and we can see what we can do to help. 

The picture upload link is:  (Please put your group name in the same box as your surname)

We will need your pictures to be uploaded to the above link by 5pm on Friday 17th July 2020 so we can judge them and announce the winning design.


Please ensure that you get an adult to submit your picture for you.

By submitting your pictures to us, you are agreeing to CRAI Scouts storing them securely and using them on our website and Social Media channels, and also for your names to be passed to your section leaders.
