About the Trip

This fantastic two-week adventure starts with a day in Boston to meet your fellow travelers before heading across the pond for a fun week of exploring London. We’ll spend four days seeing all the famous sights in London, and take a day trip to Stonehenge and Bath. We’ll see a show in the renowned West End theatre district, and make a visit to the Pax Lodge WAGGGS World Center for a special pinning ceremony.

From London, we will head north to Lincolnshire for the Poacher International Jamboree where we will camp out under the stars with over 5,000 new friends, tenting with experienced guides from Cleethorpe, England. With hundreds of activities throughout the jam-packed week, Poacher is so huge it has its own opening and closing ceremonies. Featured activities include kayaking, archery, hovercrafts, go-karting, circus arts, and much, much, more!
