Transport to and from the event is not included but lifts to/from Wooler (there is a good train service to Berwick and bus to Wooler) can be arranged upon request.

If you would like to do the level 2 training, you will need to supply your own:

  • Copy of the Girlguiding Walking Scheme booklet, downloadable from Girlguiding Trading
  • OS map, number OL16 Cheviot Hills (with map case or waterproofing)
  • Compass (e.g. Silva Expedition 4 Compass would be ideal, otherwise this must have 360o on it)
  • Torch suitable for finding the way in the dark (e.g. Petzl Tikkina)

Based at the brilliant Bradley Wood Campsite and Activity Centre in West Yorkshire we’ll spend the weekend working on the skills you need to explore the World around you. You’ll take part in activities, work towards badges and you’ll make new friends to share your adventures with too.

Whether you want to come for one or two days, on your own or as part of a group we’ll make sure that you have a great time and leave with lots of ideas to plan your next international adventure.

During the weekend we’ll also be able to tell you about the International Community Experience (ICE) which gives Guides aged between 11 and 13 an opportunity to learn about community action, help to increase their global awareness and prepare them for international experiences – but until then you can find out more here.

Find out more about this exciting opportunity by downloading the flyer here.

Already decided you’re coming along? Get your name on the list today by signing up here.

Looking for some inspiration for international themed meetings? The Spring 2018 issue of Guiding magazine is jam packed with ideas – download a copy to get started.

Trainings will be tailored to individuals with adults being asked to specify after booking what trainings and information they would like to receive at the weekend.  Adult training can include general courses such as Safe Space and 1st Response – trainings will then be organised and run on a book and go system at the weekend.

Participants will be chosen from the weekend to attend planned region international trips and more information will be provided regarding these at the weekend.

The weekend will be flexible with participants being able to attend for the whole weekend (7.30pm Friday until approximately 2.00 pm Sunday – girls camping and adults either camping or indoors) or just the Saturday.  All members can attend as individuals or as part of a group, with plenty of opportunities available to make new friends and catch up with current ones.

If camping, you will need to bring your own tent and personal equipment. Units, districts and divisions may have tents you can borrow.  The closest railway station is Brighouse, collection can be arranged from there.

If you are an adult interested in volunteering to help run the World of Opportunities weekend please do not book a ticket.  You need in the first instance to send an email to international@girlguidingnortheast.org.uk.  A member of the International Team will then contact you.

Bookings will close at 5pm on Sunday 12 August 2018.

You can pay by card, bank transfer or cheque, just select the option at check out once bookings open.

This is open to all those wanting an assessment at Bronze, Silver or Gold level. It is also open to groups running an assessment for the first time who would like support. The Bronze assessment will take place on 31 August – 1 September 2018 and you will need to communicate in advance with your group to do the planning. The Silver assessment will be 30 August – 1 September 2018 and the planning will again be done in advance electronically.  The Gold assessment is from the late afternoon of 28 August when we meet beforehand at a Youth Hostel to meet the assessor and finalise details, before beginning the expedition proper on the morning of 29 August.

Leaders of groups:

If you are the adult leader of a Bronze, Silver or Gold group running an expedition for the first time you can make use of our experience and expertise in supervising expeditions.  We will give you the campsites but your group will be free to plan their own route based on that.  The cost for the weekend will be as given above.
