Residential events are fun and some of the most memorable experiences girls and young women have with guiding. They offer opportunities for adventure and also for learning and developing skills like teamwork, leadership and independent living. Leaders get to know their girls better in a relaxed environment.
Venues that are approved by Girlguiding Bucks for residentials are listed below in the 'downloads' section.
