The Queen’s Guide Award is the highest award you can work towards in guiding. It gives you the chance to develop your skills while contributing to guiding and your local community – at an impressive level!

The Queen’s Guide Award isn’t just a great achievement to share with other members of guiding; potential employers and further education institutions will also be impressed with your accomplishment, which shows you have challenged yourself and achieved your goals in a range of different areas.

What is involved?

The award is based on the concepts of personal challenge and participation and is split into five sections:

  • Service in guiding - take an active role in guiding at a range of levels

  • Outdoor challenge - build your teamwork and leadership skills in a glorious outdoor setting. Where you go and what you do is up to you!

  • Personal skill development - start a new skill and develop it, or take an existing skill to a new level for a minimum of 60 hours over 12 months. A personal skill could be anything from ballet to circus skills, or from performing magic tricks to playing a musical instrument

  • Community action - get more involved with the world around you and gain a greater understanding of it through practical and research projects of your choice

  • Residential - spend two nights and three days away from home with new people
