One of the great advantages to living in the UK is that there is so much to explore, whether here in Surrey or further afield. From a girl scout perspective, two of the four WAGGS (World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts centres) are on our doorstep. Pax Lodge in the UK is a short train ride away in Hampstead in North London. Individual girls and troops regularly visit it and overnight visits can be arranged.
Our Chalet is based in Adelboden in Switzerland and offers a fantastic place to hike and explore the Swiss alps. ACS Cobham Girl Scouts have visited twice in the last 4 years. The most recent visit (May 2014) comprised 24 girls from 5 -10th grade and 11 adults for a 4 night adventure of trains,planes and buses to reach the chalet.
The girls fundraised for their trip and also committed to a rigorous after school programme of hikes each quarter to guarantee fitness for the 8-10 mile daily Swiss hikes. A great time was had by all and we would strongly recommend the trip.
Girl Scouts are welcome at any WAGGS international event. These are regularly updated on the For Girls Website and include events here in the UK.
