Girlguide & Scout Group Trips

International Volunteering Projects for Girlguides and Scouts

Why Choose Projects Abroad for your next International Trip?

Whether you’re looking for Girlguiding trips in Ghana and help to renovate a school, or you want to take your scouts trips abroad for adventure in the Amazon Rainforest of Peru, we'll work closely to organise a trip that is bespoke and tailored to what you want to do.

When you book a group trip with us, your trip will be:

  • Safe: We provide 24/7 staff support from the moment volunteers arrive. Not only are we a Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge holder, but our placements are thoroughly researched, safety audited, and risk assessed in line with the British Standard BS8848 for the Adventure Travel Sector. Through our safety procedures, we ensure everyone feels safe and secure at all times while taking part in both educational and adventurous activities.
  • Hassle-Free: We do most of the organisation, so you don’t have to. We aim to take the stress out of travel, supporting your role as a group leader. Planning a trip abroad has never been easier with our hassle-free approach.
  • Impactful: Our trips aren’t typical holidays, they’re designed to leave a lasting impact on local communities while helping volunteers develop skills.
  • Flexible: Every group is different. Let’s discuss how we can cater to your needs and build a trip that enhances your curriculum. Choose where you go, when you go, how long you travel, and what volunteer work you complete.

What do others have to say?

“The Projects Abroad team that looked after us were brilliant – they helped us whenever we needed it, and made us feel so welcome. This trip will forever be in our minds as it has shaped us all as people and the way in which we view the world.”

- Hannah Gray, Anglia Girlguides

“Up until our arrival, the group had worked so hard to get themselves to Ghana, from fundraising to training, they were going to make it happen! I knew they would embrace the culture and do their best to make a positive change. Venturing out of their comfort zone, it was going it be a big adventure for them which is what it is all about!

The Akuapem Hills expedition will be one that the team will never forget. It was tough, it was demanding, it was hot, but it brought the best out of the team. They stamped their mark on the happiest country in Africa and put forward the best of the RAF Air Cadets.”

- Flight Lieutenant Chris Booty RAFAC, Officer Commanding 282 (East Ham) Squadron, RAF Air Cadets

"When I take groups of Girl Guides abroad, I want to give them the opportunity to visit countries that are outside their comfort zone, and not the ones they would normally go to on family holidays. Mongolia ticked all of these boxes. The connections we had made with everyone there were tangible and so rewarding. From the very first day, our support quite literally could not have been better. Our main Projects Abroad Mongolia contact and our two other support staff, did quite literally absolutely everything they could to make our stay easy, enjoyable, stimulating and any other adjective you can think of!"

- Vicki James, Warwickshire Girlguide Group Leader
