Baden Powell Adventure 2019 – Steaming Ahead

May 17 - May 19

What? Baden Powell Adventure – Steaming Ahead
When? 17-19 May 2019
Where? Holme House, Esk Valley, Grosmont, YO22 5BG
Who for? Guides who are completing their BP Award
How much?

£65 excluding transport




This is for Guides who are working on their BP Award and have completed at least 6 of their challenges.  It will be a celebration of their achievements and an opportunity to share their experiences with other Guides whilst having fun and learning what else guiding has to offer them.


Girls will need to arrive at Home House, Esk Valley, Grosmont, North Yorkshire, YO22 5BG on Friday 17 May at 7.00 pm and be collected on Sunday 19 May at 3.30 pm.  We cannot accept any girls arriving on Saturday morning due to the programme arranged.  No exceptions will be made in this respect.  Supper will be provided on Friday night but not a full meal.


We will spend Saturday working in the engine sheds of the North York Moors Railway at Grosmont Station.  Hopefully this will include cleaning a steam engine, although this is dependent on availability on the day, as will a footplate experience.  Other projects will also be undertaken.  On Sunday there will be a train trip into Whitby where the girls will be allowed free time in small groups before returning to Grosmont.


It will be essential for the girls to bring leather/sturdy walking boots (these may get oily) in order to be allowed to work in the engine sheds and yard.  Soft trainers are unsuitable and will not be allowed.  Protective suits, hi-viz vests and rubberised gloves will be provided and we will have to adhere to MYMR safety regulations in order to take part.  More information about clothing requirements will be sent after bookings have closed.


No more than four girls from the same unit will be accepted for the weekend and girls who do know each other are likely to be split up during the weekend to enable them to make new friends and learn from the experiences of others.


If you are unable to make this BP weekend there are others available, please view the region calendar which is available here.
