In the many successful WINGS events in 1993, 1999, 2003, 2009 and 2014, many thousands of young people and adults have enjoyed fabulous international camps hosted by Berkshire in Windsor Great Park. These have evolved in size, diversity and activity over this time and we are now in the early stages of planning for the next WINGS event.
We have previously planned for the next WINGS event to be in the summer of 2019. Due to this conflicting with the next World Scout Jamboree, we would not want this to affect numbers of adults and young people who are able to be involved with WINGS. As such we are pleased to announce that the next WINGS will be in the summer of 2020, ensuring that we do not clash with a World Scout Jamboree, and giving us another year to plan and prepare for another extraordinary event.
In the run up to WINGS 2020 we will make sure that every Young Person from Rainbows and Beavers to Senior Section and Network and adult volunteer can be involved in the international programme which WINGS 2020 will create. We will also offer priority booking spaces to Units from Berkshire. Beavers, Rainbows and Cubs and Brownies will have an opportunity to visit WINGS 2020 during the week.
Planning is at an early stage, in discussion between Berkshire Scouts and Girlguiding Royal Berkshire. We expect the initial stages to be complete by the end of the summer and more activity will result from this. We will be offering opportunities for all to get involved.
