Welcome to the Great Patrol Hunt

An annual guiding competition held in Hertfordshire to find the ‘Greatest Patrol’.

It all began in 1968, Hertfordshire Scout Patrols competed annually in various ways, in what became known as "Great Patrol Hunt". In 1972, Guide Patrols were admitted to the competitions, and many of them entered the first challenge, the rest is history!

Today, Great Patrol Hunt is more popular than ever because the challenges offer patrols the opportunity to do activities that are fun, out of the ordinary and inspiring.

The competition spans over a year and comprises of three rounds. Each round has different and diverse challenges that encourage patrols to work together as a team. Marks are awarded for team work, etiquette, presentation, good deeds and achievement throughout the challenges and the event.

Participants are aged between 10 - 16 years and are an active member of a Guide Unit. Teams need not be regular weekly Patrols, but they must choose a unique name for themselves in order to enter. Patrols must consist of 4 - 6 Guides and should not include more than 10 different members throughout the three rounds. To participate in Round 3, a patrol must have competed in one of the previous rounds.

If you would like to compete, then download an entry form or contact the administrator for further information.
