Over 100 Rickmansworth Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and Rangers enjoyed a day of adventure together recently, participating in numerous group exercises together.
The Girlguides met up at Woodrow High House, near Amersham on Saturday, September 14 to partake in varied activities designed “to take people out of their comfort zones and help them develop confidence, resilience and team-building skills – challenging young people to become the best they can be”.
The girls, aged from five to 25, circulated round a range of activities including archery, bush craft, shelter building, a low ropes course, scavenger hunt, nightline challenge (finding your way over obstacles, as a group, whilst blindfolded), pioneering, plus a Jacob’s Ladder climbing challenge for older girls. A drum workshop and arts and crafts room completed the day’s offerings.
Rickmansworth and Chorleywood district commissioner Ali Hampton commented: “It was a great opportunity for girls from different units to mix and mingle, make new friends, and to try new challenges together.”
