Residential Trips

Experience a staycation like no other

Taking members away on a residential event provides great opportunities for young members and Leaders alike. It provides a chance to get away from the normal meeting place, try new activities, develop new skills, face new challenges and, of course, have lots of fun!

Going away on a residential event can be a highlight of a members time in Girlguiding and the experience can lead to life-long friendships, increased confidence and happy memories.

For leaders thinking about Residential events, there are lots of resources and help available.

This handy checklist and guide, gives you a starting point of what you need to think about in order to plan, organise and execute a residential trip – with links to further information available.

There are two versions available, one for printing (pdf) and the other if you prefer your checklists on the computer (word).
