Exclusive Weekends for Brownies & Guides


Read our guest blog: A Brownie Adventure in a Weekend

Special activity weekends

Developed in partnership with Girlguiding, these popular weekends just for Brownies and just for Guides are packed with adventure activities, from climbing and abseiling to giant swing and zip wire.

These exclusive weekends include full board accommodation for two nights, all adventure activities and instruction, evening entertainment, free places for Leaders (1:6 for Brownies, 1:8 for Guides) and insurance cover for you and your group.

Who can go?

Brownies and their Leaders in the ratio of six Brownies to one Leader. Guides and their leaders in the ratio of 8 Guides to one Leader. You will no longer need to hold a full Holiday Licence to bring your group to PGL; instead you will be able to complete the new “Going Away With” scheme through taking your girls to PGL.
