About Girlguiding

Girlguiding is the leading charity for girls and young women in the UK. Thanks to the dedication and support of 100,000 amazing volunteers, we are active in every part of the UK, giving girls and young women a space where they can be themselves, have fun, build brilliant friendships, gain valuable life skills and make a positive difference to their lives and their communities. We build girls' confidence and raise their aspirations.

If you fancy a challenge and would like to spend your summer outdoors, then take up a seasonal role at one of our fantastic Activity Centres.

All the sites offer a range of exciting activities, including team challenges, abseiling and canoeing. Along with Girlguiding groups, school groups, corporate teams, families and other parties come to use the facilities at the centres. It’s you that will make their trip extra special.

Our Centres include:

Blackland Farm, West Sussex
