Generation Green Outdoor Training Event

We are happy to announce that we are running another Generation Green outdoor training event for volunteers and adults to build their skills in the outdoors. Our weekend learning programme will give our volunteers the confidence to offer outdoor opportunities to our young members, create connections and have fun.

You’ll be able to learn new skills such as campsite techniques, campfires, walking and navigation skills, outdoor cooking, and bushcraft plus much more. All sessions will focus on providing you with the knowledge to share these skills with other members of Girlguiding.

There will also be an opportunity to talk with a Hautbois member of staff to ask questions on how to make a booking, the process leading up to visiting and what we have to offer units.

The confirmed date is 19 – 20 November, overnight stay is optional.

Please contact or call 01603 739696 for additional information.
