What we do

Our vision is to enable all our girls, young women, leaders and volunteers to fulfil their potential, have adventure, experience different opportunities and have fun in a safe girl-only environment.

British Girlguiding Overseas is part of UK Girlguiding. Units are based in many parts of the world, either in UK Overseas territories or in areas where it is impossible or inappropriate for reasons such as language or culture for the girls to join the local national organisation. Members make the same promise as in the UK, follow the current programme as appropriate to their Section and wherever possible follow the policy and rules of Girlguiding.


BGO World Thinking Day Event


After last year's successful event we are again inviting BGO units to meet up virtually over the Thinking Day weekend.

The 2022 event will take place from 18 - 21 February. This is across a weekend and should give plenty of opportunity for units to meet across different time zones and weekend days. Please register by 23 January. For all details please go to International Opportunities.

On Saturday 15 January there will be a Leaders' Internet cafe to find out more.


Waddow Hall


The proposed BGO residential and camping event at Girlguiding Waddow Hall is now planned for 24 - 29 July 2022. Brownies, Guides and Rangers will have the opportunity to enjoy a packed programme of activities. There will be possibilities for our adult volunteers at Waddow. You can find out more on the Outdoor Opportunities page.
