A weekend long Brownie camp saw around 300 girls from across Bucks take part in an Olympic themed event.

It was held at Paccar Scout Camp in Chalfont St Peter as an opportunity for the youngsters to meet other guides and camp outside under canvas from the afternoon of Friday (July 29) to the evening of Sunday (July 31).

The girls took part in a wide range of activities over the course of the three days, including abseiling, wall climbing, crystal maze and in African dancing and drumming led by the Vavani African drummers.

There was also a firework display at which some girls even made their Brownie promise and the new chief guide, Valerie Le Vaillant, came to say hello on Saturday (July 30).

Angela Hurlstone, PR advisor at Bucks county guiding, said the weekend went really well.

“The girls all loved it,” she said. “They thought it was a really exciting way to spend Brownie Camp.

“They were very excited to meet the new chief guide. They had great fun and a few girls made their Brownie promise at the firework ceremony because they thought it was a special way to do that.”

Brownie Poppy said: “It was an amazing and magical experience and one I will always remember. It is so exciting being a Brownie.”
