Open Challenges 2013
Like our bespoke challenges, open challenges welcome
members and supporters aged 18 and over. You will meet others on
your trip who are raising money for many different charities, but
you all have one thing in common: pushing your limits and doing
something very worthwhile at the same time.
How it works:
Pick the challenge you would like to do and visit the sign-up
page for it. Choose Girlguiding as your charity to support and
select your payment option. You will be required to pay a
registration fee at the time of signing up to the challenge: this
amount varies but is detailed in each challenge
itinerary. Girlguiding will receive at least 60 per
cent of your fundraising target.
Charity Challenge bookings are made with Discover Adventure Ltd
(ATOL number 5636) and are protected under the ATOL scheme. For
more information please refer to the booking terms and
