Mediterranean Watersports

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 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?
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.

Activities

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 dinghy or a catamaran, snorkelling, paddling in canoes or kayaks, or riding on the banana boat – it’s an amazing experience your Guides will love.

Excursion Day
Enjoy and experience the local area and culture with a day out and about – or visit a water park or similar attraction.

Fun-packed Evenings
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 at night for those that like to strut their stuff on the dance floor!
