Hares of Hampshire Challenge

Home / Updates / Hares of Hampshire Challenge 

Hampshire Scouts are supporting Murray Parish Trust’s Hares of Hampshire sculpture trail in the summer of 2022. Just because the hares and leverets have hopped away It isn’t too late to earn your badge! To earn the badge we recommend (for Beavers and Cubs) to complete 3 activities each from the 3 sections. You may want to do less with squirrels or more with Scouts and Explorers or adapt the challenges, it’s up to you – it’s about taking part more than doing exactly the same. 

Badges are available from shop.bvr.org.uk for £2 each or £1.50 if you order at least 10 (in any combination) and are available in Squirrel, Beaver, Cub, Scout, Sea Scout, Explorer and Adult uniforms and are approved as occasional badges which can be worn on uniform.
