Amazing denbuilding evening

Our Brownies and Guides had a joint two hour meeting this week, denbuilding with an ex-army man!

It was a massive hit, with rave reviews from the girls. We split the girls into two groups, and half got to denbuild as the other half learned how to start, feed and dampen a fire (with marshmallows in the middle, of course). Then they swapped over.

The denbuilding was great - using two army ponchos, bungee cords and tent pegs our girls can now build a shelter (in the dark) in two ways: one if the wind is steady and one if it is not.

The ex-army chap was patient, really good at explaining and full of praise.

Then we packed up and left no trace we were ever there! Fantastic night.
