Girl Guides around Australia are uniting to show their passion for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018) and earn an exclusive Embracing 2018 badge for their sash.

Guides will attempt to demonstrate their skill in four areas identified as essential to the Commonwealth Games spirit – Physical, People, Practical and Self – the tasks of which are open to interpretation and creativity of participants.

  • Guides aged 9-17 years old and adults complete two challenges from each of the four elements plus one of their choice. The badge is earned after the completion of five challenges.
