Nine girls from Waverley and six from Rays of Hope arrived on Friday at Trefoil Park. There were serious traffic issues resulting in camp starting late and the programme being swopped around to get the tents up before dark.
After supper a Guider who was knowledgeable about astronomy and her husband came to teach the girls what they needed to know for the astronomy badge. All the girls can now identify Scorpio, Sagittarius, the 1st Magnitude stars Antares, Alpha and Beta Centauri and Vega.
A beautifully decorated fruit cake had been donated to us after the District fund-raising morning market in August. It was a red tent next to a river and a fire.
We played party games - "Captain's coming", pass the parcel, muscical chairs and then a scavenger hunt to earn supper ingredients
Sunday was Guides Own (just a very short time of turning our thoughts to God) and then the start of the pack up. Tents came down much faster than they went up and before we knew it there was nothing but open ground, luggage in piles and equipment ready to be collected.
