We are really lucky as a County that we have always been able to offer exciting international opportunities for Guides, Rangers and Young Leaders, and that we have so many adventurous young people who want to take on these opportunities!

Applications for INTOPS 2024 are now open!

To attend girls will need to be born between 31st August 2006 and 1st July 2011.

What is INTOPS?

INTOPS (or International Opportunities) is the selection weekend for international trips with Girlguiding Worcestershire. We will be selecting for trips taking place in Summer 2025.

INTOPS is open to any member of Girlguiding Worcestershire born between 31 August 2006 and 1 July 2011 who will hold a Guide, Ranger or Young Leader role at the time of travel in summer 2024. During the weekend we will be looking to see who works well together and who is ready for the challenges of an international Guiding experience. It is a great opportunity to meet other members, find out about international opportunities and have fun.
