The Games Go Global challenge was developed by WAGGGS in 2012 to celebrate the London Olympics. It apparently followed challenges developed for the 2008 games in Beijing and the 2004 Olympics in Athens so their may be a 2016 Rio Challenge in the works but if there is, it hasn’t been released yet. WAGGGS seems to have only very limited badges for this challenge still in stock (Silver in English and Spanish, Bronze in French and Spanish) but the content may still be helpful if you want to run an Olympic themed camp or picnic this spring.
The Games Go Global Challenge is divided into three sections
- Stadium (body)
- Temple (mind)
- Theater (cultural)
To complete the challenge girls had to complete 1 challenge from each section for a “bronze”, two from each section for a “silver” and three from each section for “gold”. Some of the activities are specific to England as the host country but many could be used for this year’s Olympiad.
