Providing opportunities for travel

Ideas for including residential opportunities in the activities you offer to girls

Going away with your girls leads to some of the most special guiding moments around

You should try to provide girls access to at least one residential opportunity a year. Make that possible by thinking about all the chances you have to go away together when you're planning your programme.

Get together with another unit

  • Hold a joint Brownie, Guide or Ranger residential with another unit.

Put girls in the lead

National and international opportunities

Think close to home

  • Try an overnight stay locally, for example you could hold a Rainbow pyjama party and sleepover. Don't forget that Rainbows attending residential events must be accompanied by a leader from their own unit.
