Digitalisation of badge

Welcome to the Quantum Potatoes Explorer Scout Unit's Great Froggo Challenge!

This is a challenge badge suitable for all sections of all organised youth organisations: Scouting, Guiding, Cadets and many more! We will also ship overseas!


Ben, a student at Loughborough University, and a leader at our unit sadly took his own life during the lockdown of 2020. Throughout his time at the scout group he drove the leaders forward with renewed passion and helped the Explorers complete several fun and exciting challenges. Nothing was too much for him, often he would be found coming straight down after shifts at work to help with the clear up even if he had missed a meeting!

The members of the Quantum Potatoes Explorer Unit have created the Great Froggo Challenge to remember Ben, his love amphibians to raise money for Papyrus prevention of young suicide.

The Great Froggo Challenge is made up of three elements, Frogs, Mindfulness and Fun The challenges are designed for all ages and in these difficult times we have created versions of the challenges to be run virtually or face to face.

We hope that you have fun completing these challenges, earning your badge and raising money for a great cause.
