Charnwood International Scout & Guide camp 2019

After many months of planning, a group from Anglesey along with some adults on the camp staff team travelled to Leicestershire to join about 5000 young people and adults from around the world. The weather had been hot and sunny up until camp opened, so persistent rain on the first day was disappointing but did not stop the fun at our opening ceremony in a huge marquee. During the week there were many activities to enjoy and new friends to meet. Unfortunately, bad weather soon made the site a mud-bath so camp closed earlier than planned. Thanks are due to all the leaders for looking after everyone at this event, and we hope for better weather at Charnwood 2023.


No face to face meetings can take place at present. They will only start again when allowed by Girlguiding in line with Government guidance, and after risk assessments of properties and units have been completed.

However, Girlguiding has stayed active in new and imaginative ways over the past year. Many leaders have been sending out activities by post or e-mail for girls to do at home, and some of our units are meeting online. ‘Adventures at Home’ are freely available for everyone on the Girlguiding UK website.

Here on Anglesey, we held a Virtual Sleepover in November 2020 and recently launched 2nd Anglesey (Virtual) Guide and Ranger Unit which meets online. Find out more on our News page.
