INTERNATIONAL TRIP PLANNING
Are you interested in taking a unit on an Independent International Trip?? As many people will tell you, the process comes with a huge amount of paperwork. The good part is that once you have decided that you are ready to start planning…..Girl Guides of Canada has the document to take you step by step through this process. Check out the document IT1 on the Girl Guides web site under forms. This is the starting point for your paperwork.
It is suggested that you have 18 months to 2 years of planning time. This will give you a chance to fundraise over a good period in order to raise the money needed.
Our Area has a number of Guiders that have travelled internationally with Units and they are also very willing to help answer your questions.
Please contact Kootenay Area International Adviser Heather Hall at email@example.com if you want to plan a trip in 2017 or 2018 to get
your paperwork started.
The crest is now available for Twinning 2020 and can be ordered from the GGC store.
Criteria to earn this crest will be ready for you to start the 2015 – 2016 Guiding year.
Twinning 2020 Instant Meetings for Guides is available on the BC Provincial GGC web page
