Last weekend some of our Guide units enjoyed beautiful autumn weather at fun-filled fall camps. The 22nd Guides had a great time at Camp McLanlin in Abbotsford.
The girls combined the themes of camp skills and holidays, and managed to complete the BC Girl Guides Fall Camping Challenge.
Each patrol decorated their hut to suit the assigned holiday: Easter, Christmas, or Halloween. Other holiday activities included a trick (dare) or treat game, a flashlight Easter egg hunt, and a Christmasey singalong with chocolate mint s’mores.
Other more traditional camp activities included making bird feeders and camp pillows, lighting a fire three ways, and archery.
Girls also got to do a lot of camp cooking, including assembling pizzas for dinner, cooking pancakes for breakfast.
The weather was beautiful — even if it was pretty cold in the morning! What a great way to kick off fall and learn camp skills and while having silly fun with friends.
