Clifton Goes Camping
Brownies and Guides from the Clifton area went camping together!
The first day was spent on the campsite. The Brownies did some activities for the Seasons badge, including looking for some flowering plants with insects on them, tasting honey, making a giant collage out of natural objects, and making a (very glittery) Star of David while learning about Jewish winter festivals.
The next day, for the Friend to Animals badge, we visited the nearest zoo. It was only about 5km away, so we walked. We let the Guides navigate and only got a little bit off course, and only the once.
The Brownies tiredness was slightly balanced by the more downhill nature of the walk, and we only got slightly side-tracked by picking blackberries, so we made reasonable time and arrived backat the campsite in time for a short rest before dinner.
That evening was the campfire – an essential component of camp, I think.
All of us – Leaders, Guides and Brownies – had “lead a song at campfire” on our challenges, so we had quite a variety of songs going. All the favourites, of course, but I also learnt a few new ones, which was nice.
