WHAT IS CHILTERN CHALLENGE ?
Chiltern Challenge is Hertfordshire Scouts very own Explorer Scout Competition. Over the weekend, teams of five pit their wits against a series of challenges designed to show their skill, ingenuity and team working.
During the day, teams undertake the navigation challenge, our assault course (mud will be provided!) and a series of team challenges around Phasels Wood Scout Activity Centre.
Once darkness falls, the competition continues in the countryside in deepest darkest Hertfordshire. Teams will face the task of navigating to bases around our 20 km course, where further points can be gained on the night challenges.
Chiltern Challenge has been running since 1978, when it was run by the Chiltern Venture Scout Unit for local Scout and Guides. Since then the event has flourished and is now run by the Scout Network for the Explorer Scout section. Chiltern Challenge now attracts entries from around the UK.
