Rangers at Camp Olave

Last weekend the girls of the 12th Burnaby Mountain Rangers went to camp. It was not an especially adventurous camp — they wanted a weekend to chill out by the beach, hang out with their friends, and relax. Sounds pretty nice, doesn’t it?image1

The lucked out with some beautiful sunshine coast weather. Although they spent a lot of time outside, they also enjoyed lodging in the adorable Gingerbread cottage. image2 (2)

This unit has girls with a wide variety of Guiding experience — some of have been members almost their entire lives, whereas others have joined as recently as this year. It really doesn’t matter how new or old their friendships are, this small unit had a wonderful time camping together.


Several of these girls are also junior leaders in our Sparks and Brownies units and show their dedication to Guiding year round by working hard in those roles. They certainly deserved the weekend off to relax.

Here’s to plenty more opportunities for Rangers to relax and make great Guiding memories.

Classic Cookie Blitz Day

The Spring cookie campaign is well under way in Burnaby Mountain. Many units have already sold all their cookies, and even District is running low on its supply!1 Sparks Cookies

Yesterday girls from most units in the district came out to sell cookie in a true blitz style throughout the district. It would have been hard to be out in public yesterday in Burnaby Mountain District and not have come across our girls. Units were selling from 10:00-4:00 at Save-On-Foods North Road, Wal-Mart Lougheed Mall, Independent Foods North Road, Sears Outlet on Lougheed, Dollar Tree at Cameron, and Nestor’s Market at SFU.

54 Brownies Cookies 3

Cookies sold really well across the campaign and it was great to have our girls out and about being seen. The weather mostly cooperated though it was chilly and blustery for part of the day.

Thank you to all the girls who came to sell, to the leaders who organized and supervised them, and to the local businesses who supported Girl Guides by letting us sell outside your stores.
