Ideas for celebrating World Oceans Day

On World Oceans Day (8 June 2018) we’re encouraging Girlguiding Scotland members to dive in and explore the fascinating world of the sea with our challenge badge.

The Ocean Challenge Badge is created in partnership with the Scottish Association for Marine Science, the badge contains a variety of exciting activities for all sections including crafts, games and indoor and outdoor challenges.

Girls can try their hand at everything from ocean bingo to a science demonstration about ocean currents, a seafood barbeque, exploring underwater sounds or a seaweed-themed supermarket sweep. Instructions and resources are provided.

Download the challenge pack and get started. You can also buy the Ocean challenge badge pack and the badge in our Edinburgh and Glasgow Guide shops or from Girlguiding Scotland’s online shop.

If you try out the Ocean challenge badge this World Oceans Day let us know! We’d love to hear your stories and see your photos on Facebook or Twitter – or you could get in touch using the Tell us your stories form on our website.
