Wander the World 2021

2 October 2021, 10am-4pm (free event) Facebook and our website!

We’re taking Wander the World online this year on Saturday 2 October 10am-4pm and, instead of visiting an actual city, we’re going to be exploring the wonderful world of skills-ville! You’ll learn about everything from teamwork to finance and personal resilience to upcycling your style at this fun, free event!

About this event

On the day there will be a mixture of live sessions hosted within the Facebook group as well as video activities, and activities you can complete on your own, which you’ll find within our specially designed interactive map. More info on this coming soon.

All sections are welcome to attend and you don’t need to sign up as part of a unit – individuals are welcome! There will be something for everyone and we’ll let you know what sessions are more suitable for Rainbows, Brownies, Guides or Rangers, but you’re welcome to take part in everything!

How to join

We recommend that parents sign up on behalf of our younger members. To ensure the group is a safe place, we ask some security questions when you request to join – please ensure you answer these or your request will not be approved.

Please note that requests to join the group will be monitored between 9am and 6pm from Monday to Friday, so please be patient when waiting for your access to be granted.
