Update 03/07/2020: You will have read in 'Making guiding happen' that Girlguiding is finalising details of how some members could meet face–to–face in small groups outdoors. In response to this information, Girlguiding LaSER is now exploring the opportunities they can offer members during the summer holidays at region campsites Chigwell Row and Cudham Shaws. Whilst waiting for this information, at present the two campsites will remain closed, and all bookings for August are being cancelled. However, those who had August bookings will be given priority spaces for any opportunities offered during that month. Keep an eye on our website for more updates coming soon.
We have 92 acres of unspoiled countryside, waiting for you to explore and offering opportunities for you and your unit to have adventures in a safe, supported environment.— Hilary, Lead Volunteer at Cudham (2015 - 2018)

You can combine it with a stay in Silver Birches or Badgers or book it just for a daytime or evening visit, and use it for as long as you want!
