International

Welcome to the Irish Girl Guides International section. Here you can find everything from the latest news and international opportunities, to programme ideas for your Unit. You can also read about what other IGG members have experienced abroad at camps and events.

The Events and Opportunities section is regularly updated so make sure you check back often to see what exciting events are on offer. This is your chance to see what international opportunities are available for you and your Unit! These are sometimes featured in Trefoil News too, but if the deadline has passed for the magazine, the website will give you all the info you need.

Are you an international visitor planning to use Ireland as a theme on Thinking Day? We have created a special page just for you, which provides lots of activities, games, crafts and recipes for you to use with your group.

If you are an IGG Leader and would like to incorporate an international theme into your meeting, there are lots of ideas you can use. Visit International Programme Ideas for more details.
