Guiding was a positive experience

Guiding was a fun learning experience for future Pathfinder.

Dear Editor:

This year I was a member of the Third Summerland Guides.

Next year I will be moving up to Pathfinders, but I wanted to share with you my experience in guiding.

We did lots of fun things, including making crafts, earning badges and going camping. My favourite thing was having a sleepover in the youth hall, just having fun with my friends.

I am also having fun with the lady Baden Powell Challenge, which is the highest award in our level in guiding. It has taught me so much. I have also learned other things in Guides. We learned about managing money when we sold cookies, learned about problems in the world at Thinking Day ceremonies and learned about our country, town, heritage and ourselves while working on badges.

At camps, we also learned other skills like cooking, leaving a trail, setting up tents and lots more.

We had so much fun doing everything that I suggest it to all girls.

Parents can be a part of it too by coming to help with meetings.

If you are interested in learning more about girl Guides, go to www.girlguides.ca or contact Heather Martin at 250-494-0039 or e-mail her at 2ndsummerlandpathfinders@gmail.com.
