PLEASE NOTE: Sangam no longer needs Friendship bracelets. They have enough to last for some time. A big thank you to all who have sent them.

Nationally and Provincially Sponsored Trips for 2015

Have you always wanted to travel? Girl Guides offers you a chance of a lifetime with two exciting trips within Canada, to Our Chalet World Centre, Sangam World Centre, the Sea of Cortez and a Jamboree in Australia. These Nationally sponsored trips give you the chance to increase your understanding of global issues, explore new cultures and communities, and develop a sense of belonging to the global sisterhood of Guiding.

AND – an extra this year – a Provincially sponsored trip to Peru.

The deadline to your International Adviser, Janet Allcock for all events is November 9th. so don't delay. Check out the Provincial website for details about the trip to Peru. There is also a direct link from here to the National site, where the Nationally sponsored event details can be found.

Would you like to travel with Girl Guides? Here's how!

  • You and your girls can go on an adventure of a lifetime by forming a Travel Group and planning an independent trip.  
  • All members can apply to travel as a selected participant with a Nationally sponsored group.
  • Adult members can travel independently – perhaps to a World Centre or by applying to go on staff at a camp in another country.

If you are thinking about forming a Travel Group, I can help you get started. Have you considered including one of the World Centres in your travel plans? I can visit your unit and give them ideas and information.

I can also be of great assistance to anyone who is thinking of applying for a Nationally sponsored trip. These groups go to both domestic and international destinations and are usually posted towards the end of the summer. Watch the International page for information on the 2015 trips. The same selection process is used for domestic and international trips. Please encourage all members to apply.
