Last meeting of the year

We went to the local campsite for the last meeting of the year, held jointly with our Guide unit, just as we always do for the last meeting each school year (see 2008 here). We were joined by the Senior Section for the first time, it's for girls aged 14-25 though ours are mostly 14-18, our unit started a few months ago and it was lovely to have them involved too.

We kept it pretty relaxed since the girls appreciate a bit of under-organising sometimes! They spent the first 20 mins gathering wood for the Senior Section fire, then 10 mins parachute games. 20 min stuffing their face with sandwiches and the left over treats from the sleepover and they drank a lot of juice!

Bit more playing with the parachute then they made s'mores on the Senior Section fire using marshmallows and chocolate digestives.

Finally a little ceremony to say goodbye to the 3 Brownies moving to Guides, the leader moving to Canada and give out badges to the 2 girls who had earned their Adventure badge and the 10 girls who had earned their Seasons badge, plus our YL had earned the Chief Guide's Challenge (even harder than Baden Powell Award) so she was presented with that.

All wrapped up for the term - now we can start thinking about September!

You've had such a busy year. I'm always amazed by how much you do!

If you want me to send you graham crackers for s'mores, let me know.

Mmmmmm, chocolate digestives. Milk or dark chocolate?

Strictly said...

Milk, I think.

cool evening - we make smores by toasting the marsh mallows, dipping them in melted chocolate and squishing it all between rich tea biscuits.

On a training course we put the toasted marsh mallow in between 2 large chocolate buttons which was good

but I reckon toasted marsh mallow squished in dark chocolate hobnobs is pretty special too!!

Smores, how do I love thee - let me count the ways !!!!!!!!!!!
