More than 110 Girl Guides and leaders from Brisbane Water Area attended Camp Chapman at Somersby last weekend for a Fun Day to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
The girls enjoyed a great day of different and challenging activities including a rock-climbing tower, archery, obstacle course, and camp fire cooking making twisty dampers on a stick.
Brisbane Water Division Liaison Bronwyn Weatherstone said the guides made camp gadgets involving several complicated knots.
“The junior guides decorated crown shape biscuits especially created for the day,” she said.
“The girls also did some work on family heraldry, and commonwealth flags and maps.
Weatherstone said there was a variety of challenging activities including (applying) henna tattoos from India and gaiter walks in teams of three girls and stilt races.
“Girls were also challenged to decorate crowns and to produce a garden party style outfit made from newspaper.
“The day concluded with a High Tea including dressing up for the occasion in gowns and crowns or tiaras.”
