Girlguiding Leicestershire's Water Weekend is on Friday 15 May - Sunday 17 May 2020.
WHAT IS IT?
This is an opportunity open to all Guides and Rangers in Leicestershire and Rutland to camp, explore new activities and make new friends.
Guides and Rangers can camp with their unit, and we have a limited number of places available for girls from Guide, Ranger or young leader units to camp without their leaders. These girls will be looked after by a small sub camp team who will cater for them, and for any unattached adults who are supporting the event.
The cost of the weekend is a central fee of £50 per Guide or Ranger, £70 for unaccompanied girls and £10 per adult volunteer which includes all the activities and a badge. Units will need to add an additional cost for food.
An additional cost of £10 per person is charged for anyone wanting to participate in the high ropes/climbing and abseiling.
A non-refundable deposit of £20 per young member is required with the booking form.
Bookings open: 1 November 2019 and will close on either 3 April 2020 or when the event is fully booked.
