Peak Award - Joey Scout Challenge Award

The Joey Scout Challenge Award is the Section's peak award and may be the final achievement for a youth member in the Joey Scout Section. The Joey Scout Challenge Award brings together the core elements of the Achievement Pathways as well as an Adventurous Journey and a Personal Reflection.
