About the 2017/18 Competition

The competition spans over a year and comprises of 3 rounds. Each round has different and diverse challenges that encourage patrols to work together as a team. Marks are awarded for team work, presentation, effort, etiquette, good deeds and achievement throughout the challenges and the event.

There are two inexpensive activity days finishing with a camp that Guides attend without Unit Leaders, giving an opportunity to make new friends with other Guides from across Hertfordshire whilst developing new skills.

To take part please download and complete an Entry Form (per Patrol), an Information & Consent Form (per Guide). Each Guide will also need to complete a Health Information form (for camp only) and bring it to the event. Closing date for applications is Wednesday 7th February 2018.

Participants are aged between 10-16 years and an active member of a Guide Unit. Teams need not be regular weekly Patrols, but they must choose a unique name for themselves in order to enter. Patrols must consist of 4-6 Guides and should not include more than 10 different members throughout the three rounds. To participate in Round 3 a patrol must have competed in one of the previous rounds. However, if you are unable to make a full Patrol then there is an opportunity to join the 'GPH Mavericks', a patrol made of Guides from different units.

“My Guides had an absolute blast at GPH this weekend- they could not stop talking about it when they arrived at Guides tonight, and whilst they were incredibly proud of coming second overall, they mostly wanted to tell us about the fun they had and the new friends they had made. I asked one Guide for her highlight- the response was “EVERYTHING!" Sounds just like what Guiding is all about to me, thank you for providing such a great opportunity for the girls.”
