SURREY WEST INTERNATIONAL TEAM
The county international team aim to support all individuals in the county with their international adventures. The range of opportunities is huge from experiencing your first international trip as Guide with your unit to Switzerland to leading a region trip to an exciting long haul location!
International trips offer a wide range of experiences from simply having your first experience going abroad and experiencing a new culture with your unit to being involved with 3 week volunteer projects with brand new guiding friends from other parts of the country. Many of these opportunities could lead to you meeting guides in other countries too!
As a guide or Ranger a good starting point can be keeping an out for international opportunities weekend SWISO which happens every Spring and can give you the opportunity to be considered for either our county trip ( normally Europe based) or a region trip ( normally long haul locations).
For those leaders who are looking for an opportunity maybe you would like to take your unit away or perhaps you could be one of the leaders for a county trip or region trip. There are also experiences just for leaders too!
There is such a broad range of experiences that there is something for everyone! So please get in touch if you would like find out more via the below enquiry form. We also regularly post on the county Facebook page, in county snippets and on the website about our upcoming opportunities so keep your eyes peeled!
