Mara West, a Rainbow Leader here in Stone seen with Taylor Hennig, a Girl Scout from New Jersey, USA, enjoying themselves at the recently held Staffordshire’s international UNITY camp (held every four years) .
The camp saw girls from across the world (including Nigeria, Pakistan and USA) join with Guides from across Staffordshire and the UK to come together for an action packed week full of friendship and fun. Mara had stayed with Taylor and her older sister and family back in 2012 when a group from Staffordshire Girlguiding were selected to attend the Celebration camp, New Jersey. Mara was just 14 and Taylor was just 8 years old. Six years later Mara and Taylor met up again at Unity……showing that Girlguiding has no boundaries or barriers ..only friendship and unity across the miles.
Girlguiding offers international opportunities for girls aged 14 plus to travel abroad.
