The deadline for all applications is November 8, 2015. Applications for Provincial events must be sent to our Area International Adviser, Nancy Haynes.
Visit BC’s current Twinning country, Peru! Experience this land of spectacular scenery, llamas, pan pipes, the traditional lands of the Incas, the highest navigable lake in the world, and the place where potatoes were first cultivated. You will have an opportunity to celebrate Peru’s Independence Day, visit Macchu Picchu, and spend time with our Peruvian Twinning partners
Would you like to participate in an Amazing Race competition while exploring the multicultural diversity of Southwestern BC? The race will have several legs. Your team will receive clues about the destination and challenges, as you make your way to the Pit stops. No team eliminations and our prizes won’t be worth thousands of dollars, but the game will include destinations, road blocks, fast forwards, U-turns and other obstacles - just like the real race. Your team will travel by boat, train, car, bus, and on foot as you travel throughout Southwestern B.C. This race will have an International flavour - you may even feel like you are no longer in Canada! Each team will be accompanied by a Guider who will be your“camera crew”. You may be staying in hotels, hostels, tents, or even Girl Guide camps. Be prepared for an amazing experience!
