Guides in Poynton Camp at Waddow Hall

Camp at Waddow Hall

From 1st-5th August 2015, 28 Guides from 3 units in Poynton joined together to camp under canvas at Waddow Hall Campsite in Clitheroe.

The girls aged 10-12 cooked for themselves in patrols on altar fires for the whole time. They also took part in activities such as Caving, Canoeing, Orienteering, Swimming, Zipwire and even scaled a 60ft tree as part of the tree climb activity.

The camp theme was ‘I’m a Guide get me out of here’ and along with their very own version of The Bush tucker trials the Guides had to fish stars out of plates, feely boxes and paddling pools full of nasties including meal worms and hotdog sausages.

Eight of the Girls also made their promise to become members of the unit during the campfire which also involved the Guides performing their own skits. All the girls gained their Campers badge with three gaining their Camper advance.

Everyone had an amazing time and learnt so many new skills! They certainly proved ‘This Girl Can’.

Thanks go to all the Leaders who made it possible.
