International Visitors

Would you like to join us at Quest 2020?

Hundreds of Guides from across Oxfordshire and from around the world will arrive in the Oxfordshire countryside on the 26th July and stay until the 1st August 2020 for a camp of fun, discovery and adventure.  We’d love to welcome you too.

 

What to expect?

The camp will include a range of adventurous, creative and cultural activities, as well as opportunities to meet new friends from around the world.  From the moment you arrive to the final farewell, being part of Quest 2020 will give you an opportunity to try out new adventures, make new friends and create memories to last a lifetime.

What help can we offer you?

We offer advice and support with visa requirements, bookings and transport arrangements in the UK to and from Quest; as well as finding opportunities to extend your stay.  We will ‘buddy’ your group with a local unit in advance which will enable you to communicate with them beforehand, ask any questions and give you a feel for what your time in the UK will be like.  Both your buddy unit and the county International advisor will communicate with you before the event to ensure your needs are met. You may have to contribute to extra costs, such as equipment hire but can arrive knowing it is all ready for you!  For international staff and units, equipment hire is available if required.

 

 

 

Who can attend?

Quest is open to all member Girl Scout and Girl Guide associations registered with WOSM or WAGGGS outside of the UK. Participants must be aged 10 to 17 years of age. Those aged 18 or over can attend as unit leaders (if they have the appropriate qualification) or join our staff team.

 

What does it cost?

Participant fees will cost £185 which includes transport from Oxford train station to and from the Quest camp site.  You will need to arrange your own transport/flights to and from the UK and from the airport to Oxford.  We can help you in sending you details of trains and buses from the airports to Oxford as needed.

Participant fees will include a neckerchief, t-shirt, goodie bag and all food and activities during the camp.

 

 

Where?

Quest 2020 is held at St Hugh’s school only 15 miles outside of Oxford.

With access to Oxford and London and all major airports via the M40 and M25, our camp is easily accessible to visitors from near and far.  To consider your transport, take a look at our location of St Hugh’s School SN7 8PT.  The site is the grounds of a school, but for the week of Quest it is alive with tents, laughter and fun.

Registering interest does not confirm your booking. You will need to complete the booking form which is sent to you and return this with your deposit to secure your place.
