Each year, February 22nd is like a giant festival (just in case you missed our launch of the theme for Poacher 2021)!
We are super excited to give all of our 2021 participants the adventure of a lifetime. We also know that Poacher holds a special place in the hearts of many people. We would love to hear about your memories of Poacher.
We recognise that young people in the 14-17 age group have a wide range of interests and as such we are offering a range of options for them at Poacher 2021.
My first Poacher experience was in 2004 when our group from Alberta, Canada was hosted by a British Girl Scout unit. I didn’t have any idea what to expect and was so pleasantly surprised by the event that I took a different group of girls in 2008. I told those girls that it was a week long International event that they would never forget.
As for all Guiding and Scouting events they couldn’t take place without volunteers. Without volunteers at Poacher there would be limited activities, no medical team, no admin function and no leaders to bring and support the participants – there wouldn’t be a Poacher as we know it.
2019 has been a busy year for the Poacher 2021 Senior Management Team and the Senior Leadership Team.
