SCHOOLS OUT - BRING ON THE GUIDES!


DERWENT GIRLGUIDING COCKERMOUTH & KESWICK


It’s Saturday morning and I wake with a mixture of excitement, anticipation and apprehension. What lies ahead of me? My first Guide Camp as a guide leader. My bags are packed, the sun is shining and I’m on my way.


I’m one of the first to arrive at camp, the site in Branthwaite feels large and empty and is eerily quiet. It slowly fills with chatter as guides and guiders arrive and set about the business of putting up tents and establishing our home for the next week. Let the fun begin and what fun we had! Days filled with exciting activities and adventures, both traditional and new set against our ‘emoji’ theme. We learned army skills, dancing, practised bush crafts and had our faces painted. We played all kinds of games, from target football to hunt the poo - in keeping with the emoji theme! Even cleaning the latrines was fun – I think!


Open fire cooking was a first for many of us, we were amazed with our fine results - chicken korma, bangers and mash, pancakes all cooked to perfection and lots of empty plates! Of course, no guide camp would be complete without ‘S’mores’ and singing round the campfire. Five days later, the site is quiet and empty once more, as I reflect upon my first


Derwent Guides Camp, my only response is: “Bring on the Next Camp – I can’t wait!”


As well as Guides (age 10 to 14) we have groups of Rainbows (age 5 to 7), Brownies (age 7 to 10), and Rangers (age 14 to 18). Any girls or adults interested in joining us should visit www.girlguiding.org.uk/joinus
