Out of an abundance of caution – and at the instruction of Girl Guides of Canada’s national office and with the recommendation of the SOAR Steering Committee as well as BC health authorities – BC Girl Guides will be unable to host the Spirit of Adventure Rendezvous this summer in Sooke, BC.
This course of action is to ensure the health and well-being of girls, adult members, volunteers and the greater community. We regret any disappointment that participants may feel, but given the complexity, large scale (nearly 3,500 people), and risk factor of this event, GGC has chosen to proceed in this way to allow participants ample time to make alternative plans for their summers.
Many questions, including whether or not the event can be rescheduled and about financial implications of this announcement, may be on your mind at this time. We gratefully request your patience while BC Council gathers the information we need to make decisions that meet the needs of our members.
