We're very pleased to reveal that next year our Adventures in trip will be held in the beautiful city of Prague! Prague is the capital and largest city of the Czech Republic, and on Saturday 11 August 2018, our members will be taking it over as part of their international adventure.
We aim to get as many members in Prague on the same day for a fantastic gathering as part of this international adventure.
The event is planned for Saturday 11 August 2018 although groups can go for longer if they wish to use it as part of a longer trip with their groups.
Our aim is to have as many Senior Section members and Guides from every County within the Region with their Leaders in Prague at the same time!!
The event gives every participant the chance to discover Prague. We’d also like those who can to challenge themselves and visit somewhere else en route or on your way home. Why not take the train and turn this into a European adventure visiting the Netherlands and Germany on your way!
This is a non-selection event and we hope many Leaders will use this opportunity to take their unit, or event their District or Division abroad.
Bookings will open for Group Leaders from July 2017.
There will be a small event fee per person. This will cover things like the production and mailing of information to units and a badge for participants.
Units will receive a comprehensive event booklet, with information about: forms, how to get to Prague, where to stay, what to do whilst there and details about the gathering. There will also be more ideas on how to expand your International Adventure, and it will also include a section on fundraising ideas.
- There will be event mailings at regular intervals following registration.
- Each group leader will be responsible for their unit’s finance, travel and accommodation arrangements.
- All number ratios for international trips must be adhered to – as per The Guiding Manual.
- All licence requirements for International trips must be adhered to – as per The Guiding Manual.
- There will be a Region team in Prague to support Leaders whilst there.
Please also remember that Leaders who do not currently have their Travelling Abroad residential qualification can use this event to gain this module and may apply for a Travelling Abroad Grant from CHQ. Normal application procedures for this qualification will apply – application form and instructions are on the Girlguiding website.
