I look forward to welcoming and meeting all the Internationals that are coming to Charnwood 2016 and help them have the most amazing week of their lives.
Hi- I have a wealth of international experience and have organized and planned many international trips over the years. I have attended the BSA Jamboree in 2013 and the last two World Scout Jamboree’s. I also travel the world for my job! I look forward to meeting everyone and exchanging our different cultures and experiences. Charnwood 2016 is going to be a truly great international camp and glad that you are part of it.
We are the ‘Champions of the World’ of Charnwood 2016 and we are here to look after the International groups and International Staff during their stay. If you have a question or query no matter how small come and find us.
Hello this is my 7th Charnwood and this time I am helping on the International team, because of the experience I gained from the international opportunities that girlguiding has given me. I have been to four of girlguiding World Centres India, Switzerland, Mexico and here in the UK. I have also been to Denmark and Holland International camps and travelled with adult groups to Australia and New Zealand.
