The Challenge - click here for the complete document

  • Girls are required to complete one level from 4 of the 6 areas for each branch they’re in.  
  • Levels are completed for the branch the girl belongs to and girls cannot work backwards to earn crest components from branches they weren’t a member of.
  • The crest is built up as the girls move from Branch to Branch, increasing their experience camping and their exploration of our 2 provinces.
