    Hi all,

    So my Brownies talked me into taking my camping license in May 2018. I've done a few camps for experience but don't feel I know enough to go straight into my test. Is anyone going on camp anywhere in the north of England between now and May? Brownies or Guides, I don't mind, I will volunteer as a helper in return for the practice. I'm happy to just mess in but can also offer arts and crafts if you want something planning.

    Well done on taking this on, you'll not regret it. Can you be a bit more specific with north of England?

    I was looking for an additional leader for our camp, but we're south London, so not very convenient to you!

    Have you spoken to your County Outdoor residential advisor ? She may be able to point you in the direction of someone locally going away.

    You could always volunteer at Sparkle & Ice too. Not your traditional camp but good experience just the same...it's at Waddow in February

    Where is it and when? I won't rule anything out - I am keen to learn!

    I'm doing a quick overnight (camping) next weekend if it helps but we are Midlands - hence my question about "north of England". If someone comes from south of Watford gap, they think we are north!

    Thanks for thinking of me - I have my aunt and uncle here that weekend so will have to say no. But other suggestions are still welcome.

    (I guess people who live in the vaguely defined 'north' know that's where they are!)
