I have learnt so much about myself at Our Chalet! From learning my physical limits on the overnight hike, and the reward of completed effort, to learning the value of working as a team on every hike, the Chalet and the people who make it come alive have taught me more about who I am than I ever imagine possible. I’ve learned that no matter where people come from or what language they speak, girls from all over the world can unite and celebrate nature, individual abilities and the triumphs of team-work and friendship.

At Our Chalet I have learnt that Guiding isn’t just about patches and campfires, it’s about friendship, accomplishing things you never thought possible with girls across the globe. Erin, Summer Event participant from Indiana, USA
