Octagon was Irish Girl Guides’ 14th International Camp, held virtually from 31 July to 2 August 2021. Due to the global pandemic caused by COVID, the camp, which was originally to be held in Clongowes Woods, in Clane, Co. Kildare, adapted so that Octagon 2021 happened in a variety of places in a variety of ways. Camp ceremonies and activities streamed live from our host location of Dublin City University!

Octagon was a fun-filled, three-day event with over 1,000 members of Irish Girl Guides (IGG) and our international friends, representing 10 countries, “camping” at home and locally, connected together via a programme of online and at home events and activities.
The Irish Girl Guides’ spirit enabled us to find ways to join in the fun and stay connected – from our homes, from our campsites, from across the world. For IGG members, search ‘Octagon’ in the Activities section of OGM for lots of great planning ideas!
