Guides go off grid for fun
GIRL guides have returned from an intrepid adventure weekend.
The 1st Henbury Guide Unit joined more than 400 girls from across the North West for the ultimate outdoor challenge.
Dubbed Guides off the Grid, the girls were challenge to switch of all technology and get back to basics through a variety of different activities.
On the action-packed weekend at Ormskirk, they completed adventurous activities including a high ropes course, climbing wall, water activities, archery and abseiling.
The weekend finished with all members taking part in an It’s-A-Knockout challenge, where the girls had to work in teams to complete an inflatable assault course.
Molly Edwards, 10, said: “I had a great time at Guides off the Grid and made loads of new friends. This was my first time on Guide camp and it was awesome.
“My favourite activity was the high ropes course – even though I was a bit nervous at first, it was really fun and I’m glad I had a go.”
Julie Bell, region chief commissioner said: “Guides off the Grid gave our girls from across the region a fabulous opportunity to experience some great adventurous activities. The guides gained skills while having tons of fun and mayhem.”
