1. Air Activities
2. Community Impact
3. Digital Citizen
4. Digital Maker
5. Nautical Skills
7. Paddle Sports
The Challenge badges are being completely re-designed, with new colours and a new shape. There will still be nine Challenge badges, however only 3 of them are the current badges continued. The new ‘Creative Challenge’ is more about creative thinking that being artistic, as for the ‘Skills Challenge’ is more like the old ‘Creative Challenge’ badge, but using a wider variety of tools and equipment.
The Outdoor and Expedition Challenge (along with the ‘Creative Challenge’) are the only badges to continue, but with new requirements. The Outdoor Plus will no longer be an option.
If you get a certain number of Challenge badges you can receive your re-designed ‘Gold Award’.
