Warning of heffalumps was one of the activities enjoyed by Brownies during a four-day adventure holiday.
Youngsters from 4th March and 2nd Doddington units have returned from a holiday at the Jarman Centre, Girlguiding East’s Residential Centre, near Newmarket. A A Milne’s Winne the Pooh was the theme for the four days, which created a host of fun activities for youngsters.
Girls had fun playing a Winnie the Pooh game in the woods which involved the Brownies making a stretcher, finding a new key for Pooh bear, semaphore messaging to warn of heffalumps in the woods as well as tree identification. The Brownies all aged between seven and 10 worked in small groups to help prepare meals and do other household jobs as well as enjoying time in the sensory garden, going on a night hike around the centre, fire lighting and other woodcraft skills.
Doddington Brownie Leader, Becki Fisher said “It was great seeing the girls have so much fun with their friends, learn new skills and work together as part of a team.”
