Army Takeover Day

Starts: Sat 14 Mar 2020
Ends: Sat 14 Mar 2020

Complete your Lead skills builder Stage 5 in a day with the British Army!

Come along to the Army Medical Services Training Centre, Strensall Camp, York on Saturday 14th March. All activities will be delivered by serving soldiers, most of them young women, who want to help as many Guides and Rangers as possible to achieve their stage 5 Lead skills builder.
Over the course of the day the girls will do activities which will meet all the required elements of the stage five Lead skills builder and will test their leadership and teamwork skills.

You can bring as many Guides and Rangers as you'd like but there must be one leader for every ten girls as they'll be working in separate groups of ten. The activities are challenging for most under 12-year olds so we ask that you bring only 12 – 18 year olds. When making your bookings, please don’t include the adult leaders as part of your total number – you will be added on as extras.
The British Army will not use, demonstrate or display weapons or provide recruitment literature at this or any Girlguiding event nor will they encourage girls to make applications to join the British Army. This engagement activity has the sole aim of sharing leadership skills.
Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Please only book the places you are sure you can fill, to leave space for other units.

This is a free event but bookings must be completed through the Army’s own ‘Eventbrite’ page by Sunday 31 January 2020:
