Experts in residence...

Get groups to discuss their favourite residential ideas.


  1. In groups, ask girls to choose from the selection of residential destination cards.
  2. Ask them to think about what they would like to do at that residential, such as activities or an overall theme.
  3. The groups then share their ideas with the unit and everyone votes on the residential idea they like most. 
  4. Take it further: hold a focus group to decide on the details - location, type of residential event, theme, food, activities and so on.
