for Brownies and Guides
Success on the water
There’s sun, sea, sand, and so much more! Bring out the best in your Guides with a Mediterranean adventure from PGL.
The result is motivated, self-assured girls who have spent an inspiring trip away together, enjoying a thrilling watersports experience off the shores of the Costa Brava or the Languedoc coast.
Your Guides will have the chance to develop new skills and increase their confidence on the water; experience some of the most beautiful coastal landscapes; maybe pick up a bit of French or Spanish?
It’s their chance to explore, learn and discover; to practise, work together and succeed.
It’s your chance to help your Girl Guides believe in themselves.
A PGL watersports course is packed full of thrilling sessions on the water. There will normally be half a day dedicated to mastering a particular craft which means your Guides are able to enjoy two different experiences each day.
Whether it’s sailing a Pico or catamaran, snorkelling, paddling in canoes or kayaks, or riding on the banana boat – it’s an amazing experience your Guides will love.
Enjoy and experience the local area and culture with a day out and about – or visit a water park or similar attraction.
To round off a thrilling day, we’ll provide fun-packed evening entertainment sessions that are sure to engage even the quieter girls. There’s even a disco each night for those that like to strut their stuff on the dance floor!
