Guides en­joy bush­tucker tri­als and tree climb­ing fun at camp

Macclesfield Express - - MOTORING -

GIRLS from three Guid­ing units got to camp be­neath the stars in a fun packed week­end with friends.

The 28 Guides from Poyn­ton joined to­gether to camp at Wad­dow Hall Camp­site in Clitheroe.

The girls aged 10-12 cooked for them­selves on al­tar fires, where the fire pit is raised above the ground.

They also took part in ac­tiv­i­ties such as cav­ing, ca­noe­ing, ori­en­teer­ing, swim­ming and a zip­wire, and even scaled a 60ft tree as part of a 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 bush­tucker tri­als, the guides had to fish stars out of feely boxes and paddling pools full of nas­ties such as meal worms and hot­dog sausages.

Eight of the girls also made their prom­ise to be­come mem­bers of the unit while around the camp­fire, where Guides also per­formed their own skits.

All the girls gained their campers’ badge, with three gain­ing their ‘camper ad­vance’.

Lyn­d­say Lamb from Poyn­ton Guides said: “Ev­ery­one had an amaz­ing time and learnt so many new skills. They cer­tainly proved ‘This Girl Can’. Thanks to all the lead­ers who made it pos­si­ble.”
