Boston Spa Brownies joined over 250 others for a weekend under canvas at Girlguiding North East England’s Adventure Allsorts event at Sheffield’s Whiteley Wood recently.
The youngsters took part in three days of activities including climbing, canoeing, pioneering, football and circus skills. Other activities included geocaching, backwoods cooking and willow weaving.
Lucy, 8, from 2nd Boston Spa Brownies said: “It was great fun, but we didn’t go to sleep. I enjoyed the lovely cooked breakfast!“ Boston Spa Brownies had a great time making backwoods shelters.
“We’re making a shelter so we don’t get wet”, said one girl as they hauled a tarpaulin over a pair of tripods they had lashed together. Later in the day they enjoyed crafts and climbing.
Guiding is open to all and girls interested in joining in with such activities and opportunities should phone 0800 1 69 59 01 or visit www.girlguiding.org.uk
