Have you ever considered taking part in an international experience?

Within Lancashire North West there are a number of ways to think globally and gain new international experiences.

As a County, we are very passionate about providing as many opportunities for international travel to Guides, Rangers and Adult members.

2019 is already proving to be a busy year for globe trekkers across the county:

  • One adult member is heading to Sri Lanka in March along with 17 other members from across the North West Region as part of the Bloom Project – You can follow their exploits here
  • In April, a select few Guides and Guiders of Lancashire North West will be joining other members from across the North West Region on the ICE (International Community Experience) trip to Finland! You can follow their exploits and meet a very special member, ‘Fin’ on Instagram or Twitter
  • In July, over 100 members including Guides, Rangers and Leaders will be heading to the Black Forest, Germany for a week of fun, exploration and adventure. We will be posting regular updates on their adventures!
  • In 2020, three Guides are heading to EuroJam in Poland. They will be busy fundraising throughout 2019 so please keep an eye on our events section to see how you can help them get there!
  • The County is also organising an adult leaders only trip to Mexico in August 2020 for the the Day of the Dead festivities as well as other activities and sightseeing.

All the Guides, Rangers, Young and Adult Leaders are enthusiastic ambassadors for Girlguiding UK and we are very proud at LNW to have such a great passion for International travel.

Adult International Opportunities

We are always looking for adults to lead and assist with groups that are going abroad. Could you help? As well as having a fantastic experience yourself you would be giving young women the opportunity to experience a Guide/Ranger event abroad. If you would like to lead or assist at the next County trip please contact international@girlguidinglancsnw.org
