If the answer to any of the above is 'Yes', then come and join us for the Level 1 Walking Weekend in the New Forest. The weekend is open to adult and Senior Section members over 18.
We will be staying indoors at the Wilvery Scout Campsite, Brockenhurst, Hampshire.
The Level 1 training course is aimed at members over 18 wishing to gain or extend their existing walking skills and the confidence to lead groups safely in normal Lowland country. You will find out about the Girlguiding Walking Scheme and can choose whether to work towards gaining a Girlguiding walking qualification (or not). The course will include both short theory and practical outdoor sessions on:
The course doesn't assume any existing skills / knowledge, so if you think you know very little about maps or have forgotten what you did know, that is fine!
The walking will not be fast or strenuous; you should expect to be out for at least a half-day walk on both Saturday and Sunday - a little longer on Saturday. The emphasis will be on learning by doing, supported by experienced and friendly trainers.
The fee is £70 to cover weekend food, accommodation and training. Members of Girlguiding South West England have the opportunity to apply for a leadership and training grant towards the cost of this training.
Do you fancy something a little more informal?
Come along and enjoy some beautiful countryside in the company of like-minded people.
It is a perfect opportunity to gain some further lowland walking experience, to complete a Level 1 logbook walk or simply explore a new area and enjoy a walk in the New Forest.
The Leisure Walking is run informally alongside the Level 1 training. You will have the opportunity to benefit from the support of an experienced walk leader and to share ideas with others.
The fee is £70 to cover weekend food, accommodation and walk leadership.
All attendees must be over 18 yrs. Closing date for bookings is 5th May 2019.
Please note that a list of participants including email addresses will be circulated after the closing date in order to help with travel arrangements. If you do not wish your details to be circulated to other participants, then please indicate this when you do your booking.
