World Centres

WAGGGS operates four World Centres (sometimes referred to as 4WC) that offer training programmes, activities and lodging for girls and leaders, as well as members of some other groups and independent travellers. Activities are primarily focused on international friendship and co-operation, personal development and leadership training, enjoyment and service. The Friends of the Four World Centres organisation supports and promotes the centres.

The four World Centres are:

  • Our Chalet, in Adelboden, Switzerland; opened in 1932.
  • Pax Lodge, in Hampstead, Northwest London, England; current location opened in 1990. It is actually London's third World Centre; the first was Our Ark, opened in 1937, which was moved and renamed Olave House on its 25th anniversary.
  • Our Cabaña, in Cuernavaca, Mexico; opened in 1957.
  • Sangam, in Pune, Maharashtra, India; opened in 1966.
