Every penny helps our unit to grow and reach more young people from all backgrounds. Your donation could help Hurst Guides secure better resources, provide essential training for our volunteers or fund a new activity. The possibilities are endless.
Completing interest badges has always been a much-loved part of guiding.
They focus on fun. And are designed to open girls’ eyes to activities they might not have tried before, or allow them to dig deeper into the things they love.
Each interest badge consists of three challenges, but we don’t tell girls exactly what to do. Instead they choose how they tackle each challenge and each girl will do something unique.
There’s no 'right' way to do it and this encourages girls to be creative and challenge themselves. They also give girls the chance to personalise their experience and develop their independence and self-confidence. They introduce them to a range of activities they may never have considered. Who knows, a badge could introduce a girl to an interest she treasures for the rest of her life.
Fancy earning your own badge?
At Hurst Guides we have put together a very special interest badge that you can work on together as a family. Our Guides have come up with 3 challenges that you must complete to earn your very own virtual interest badge.
