Over 3000 Young People and Leaders have received their badges and certificates for The Essex Challenge 2014 and are proudly displaying their achievement!

Many Groups took up the challenge and have enjoyed a variety of programmes, with some of the popular ones being chocolate beaver dams, “I’m a Cub – Get me out of here” and sumo wrestling.

The Essex Challenge covered a number of themes and gave Leaders the chance to try something new or refresh an old favourite.

The Essex Challenge team were delighted to see the photos and news articles coming in over the year.  Julie Hickman, Assistant County Commissioner (Beaver Scouts) said “The Young People look so proud of their completed activities and will now be able to show off their successes with their Essex Challenge badges”

County Commissioner; Richard Baker commented: “I’m really proud of the support that our Youth Programme team provide to volunteers across Essex and The Essex Challenge is just one example of this, thanks guys”
