Middlesex North West Young Leaders selected for LaSER International 2024

4th Ruislip Windmill Brownie Young Leaders, Erin and Chloe selected for LaSER International 2024.


Our names are Erin (15) and Chloe (16), we are Young Leaders at 4th Ruislip Windmill Brownie Pack in Ruislip. 

Last summer, we applied for LaSER International, which gives you the opportunity to explore either Europe or Japan. The application process included detailing our hobbies and personalities. After this, we were asked to come to selection day in London at the ICANDO. 

The day involved fun activities such as map reading, to show our direction skills, escape rooms to show how we work under pressure; and social games to help us get to know the other applicants.

There was around 200 girls who had applied for this trip. We had so much fun meeting everyone who were in the same boat as us!

Two weeks later, we both received the news that we were accepted into the Europe trip! Although not in the same group, we are still so grateful that we were given this opportunity! 

We met with our groups again in October 2023 for a two-night camp. The camp involved us planning our routes and getting an idea of what activities we would be doing across Europe. 

We did lots of team building games to help get to know the other girls, which has built strong friendships! We now have group chats with the other girls to keep in contact and update them on our fundraising journey!

Last Saturday, we met with our groups again to finalise the plans of our trip, with another meeting scheduled in April. We have found that the selection process for this has been very straightforward and we have had so much fun preparing for our adventure to Europe.

We are both extremely excited to be going on this journey in the summer! We would 100% encourage everyone to apply for this opportunity when it next comes around, as it has already taught us life long skills and made lots of new friends!

Thank you for reading, and a huge thank you to those that have placed orders with us already for our challenge badges.
