Girlguiding North East England wants this adventure to be a celebration of your achievement at completing the ‘ultimate award’ for the Guide Section.

We also want you to try something new, meet Guides from other units and discover what further opportunities are available to you in Guiding. This Adventure will start at 7.30pm Friday and finish approximately 4pm Sunday (exact finishing time to be confirmed nearer the date).

The cost of the weekend is £60. This does not include your transport to/from Grosmont. Places are limited and will be issued on a first come first served basis.

The service project will take place in the steam engine sheds at Grosmont and we will have to adhere to safety regulations to take part. High vis vests, rubberised gloves and disposable overalls (to be worn over old clothes) will be provided. Girls will need to have leather walking boots/sturdy shoes to be able to take part. Full safety briefing and adult supervision will be provided. On Sunday we will take a steam train journey to Whitby.

Please note there will be a maximum of 4 Guides per Guide unit allowed (unless extra spaces are available after the closing date). Also, please be aware that you are likely to be separated from other members of your unit over the weekend. Remember you will be asked to send in your Challenge Record Sheet. Come and join in this unusual and exciting adventure to complete your Baden-Powell Award!
