What an amazing weekend!
We have had the most amazing weekend celebrating VE Day on the ‘V for Virtual’ camp organised by Helen Green and her inspirational team.
It has been really refreshing to focus on fun Guiding activities during this difficult time, and learn a lot along the way. I can’t sing their praises enough. We have completed challenges such as dressing in the dark, lighting a fire, cooking a three course meal, exercise, make do and mend, creating a badge and more; been given a wealth of information by video and written means, followed by a variety of quizzes as a fun way to test our knowledge; taken part in a virtual campfire sing song, Guides’ Own, and closing ceremony; caught up with old friends and made new ones.
One of our favourite activities was the scavenger hunt! All the material has been presented in a thoughtful way so that girls and adults of all abilities can challenge themselves to join in and do something new. We could dip in and out as we wished meaning other commitments such as work and caring for relatives didn’t prevent full involvement in the event, and all the way through people shared their experiences and achievements on the dedicated Facebook page (navigation of which is still a challenge to me!). Of course the weather helped make it a good weekend, but as with many camps, we had to rush to strike before the rain came!
I wish I had time to write more, but one thing I will add – if the opportunity to be involved in one of these camps comes again – go for it! Bravo, Bravissimo, Jolly Well Done to everyone involved! Thank you again Brock and Racheal
