If you – or a guide or ranger you know – love travelling, meeting new people and experiencing new cultures, we have just the adventure for you.

Every year hundreds of participants flood to international camps or opportunities with their fellow guiders and scouters. We are on the hunt to find some special girls (aged 13 up to 19) to come and take part in a taster weekend.

During the weekend you will find out about the most amazing international opportunities available through Girlguiding. At the end of the weekend, we can nominate participants to take part in the Region Selection weekend. Over the past years we have had members travel to Japan, Canada, Finland, Romania and Holland.

If this sounds just up your street, send us your application to join us at our taster weekend in March.
