The Bubbs Hill Bash was born from the end of the Malvern Challenge! When the Malvern Challenge team announced they were planning the final one in 2014 after 30 years many Leaders in Gloucestershire were saddened as the weekend was fantastic.

What is the Bubbs Hill Bash?
The event is a team challenge for Guides and Senior Section Gloucestershire which takes place on Bubbs Hill at our County headquarters, Deer Park, Cowley from 22-23 June 2019. It is an opportunity for Guides and their Leaders to experience a large scale event, make friends from around the county and to camp overnight.
It starts on Saturday 22 June 2019, arrival times will be staggered between 10am and 12 noon; and finishes on Sunday 23 June after the awards and closing ceremony, again departure times will be staggered between 10.30am and 12 noon.
After the official opening the challenge will begin at 3pm and finish at 9pm, with a warming hot chocolate to end the day. The challenge itself takes the teams around Deer Park and Bubbs Hill where they will take part in various challenges. Points will be awarded from completion of the tasks and good teamwork. Each team is also asked to bring their own 'pet' mallet which also likes to take part in challenges.
Each unit must have at least one Leader attending the event and must adhere to Girlguiding's 1:12 ratio. All Leaders will be expected to help out during the activity times and specific roles and timings will be sent to you nearer the time.
No residential licence is required to attend this event, these will be provided at County level. However please note that if you wish to camp as a unit at Deer Park or any other campsite in the future then the appropriate qualification is required. Ask your local Outdoor Residential Adviser (ORA) if you need further information about gaining your Going Away With Scheme.
