The Chief Scout’s Challenge

Malham Tarn

cscbadgeThe Chief Scout’s Challenge was a special challenge from the Chief Scout, Major-General Michael J. H. Walsh, to all scouts aged 14 – 15 and a half. As one of a team of four to five scouts you were challenged to plan and take part in a three day expedition in unfamiliar country to carry out a project. Your team had to be be entirely self sufficient throughout the three days, carrying their own tents, food and being able to cope with their own first aid.

In 1983 the 16th Morecambe Troop was the first in the County and the District to achieve the award.
