Camp & Holiday Funding

We would like to offer all our girls the chance to go away with guiding, to a camp or a holiday in the UK or further afield.

We would like to subsidise one trip for each child this year to ensure each of our members the chance to go away.

September 2013 - August 2014

  • Need


    We are based in a deprived area of glasgow and not all of our girls can afford to come away with us.


    By Subsidising trips, we enable all our gilrls to have the opportunity to go away with us.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    For everyone of our girls to go away with our unit at least once in 2013/14


    » Trip to London in October 2013
    » Camp on a Commonwealth theme in 2014
    » Trip to WINGS 2014
    » Trip overseas in 2014

    What success will look like

    For every girl to have been away for at least one night with guiding

  • Impact


    This project will allow our members to grow in confidence.


    There is a risk that the girls could change thier mind.
    We ask for deposits from each child to ensure that minimal costs are covered. Subsidies will not be used to cover these costs


    Funders of this project will receive a quarterly report on what the girls have been up to.
