I'm a Brownies leader in Cambridge. I love canoeing and am interested in bushcraft, and there's a place in Norfolk that does "Swallows and Amazons" adventure days for kids: Swallows & Amazons Adventure Days | TheCanoeMan, Canoeing & Kayaking in the Norfolk Broads National Park, England, UK We'd have to have alot of adult participations - we'd need at least 1 adult in each boat, so we'd have to have 1 parent come along for every 3 Brownies. It's roughly 75 miles away from Cambridge. How do we get there? We could invite other Brownie units to come with us and hire a coach. We could hire a mini-bus and do self drive (my husband has the mini-bus capability on his driving license) but only bring a limited number of Brownies & parents. We could ask that the parents drive. The coach will be expensive and more complicated to arrange (with the other units), and given that we'd have to have so many parents along, the parents would be well out of pocket - a large cost for the trip for their daughters, as well as a high cost for themselves for those that go. The minibus would cost less (I'm guessing - I'm not 100% sure!), but we'd only be able to take 12 Brownies (and their 4 adults). Parents driving would be the cheapest - we'd charge each girl an extra amount of money for transport, and give that to their driver for fuel etc. But people can get lost, even in these days of satnav, and there's a good chance that some of the cars with Brownies and adults would show up too late. Does anyone have any experience with this sort of thing? Can you give me some advice?
