We're very pleased to announce that bookings for Adventures in Prague are officially open!
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.
The event will take place on 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.
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.
- 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, and for this event the Leader can be awarded up to £100 in grants – the application form and instructions are on the Girlguiding website here.
This has lots of information about: forms, how to get to Prague, where to stay, what to do whilst there and details about the gathering. There is also lots of ideas on how to expand your International Adventure, and a section on fundraising ideas.
Please return your completed form, together with your cheque to: Girlguiding North West England, Guiding Road, Preston, Lancashire, PR2 5PD by 31 January 2018.
