Northallerton Guides have fun at "Giggles" camp
3:21pm Friday 13th September 2013 in News
GUIDES from Northallerton joined some 1,500 girls from all over the world for North-East England’s International camp.
Held near Settle in the Yorkshire Dales, the event was called “Giggles” and had the theme of all the fun of the fair.
Dot Salmon, leader of 2nd Northallerton Guides, said: “The camp lived up to its name, despite the weather being rather wet.
“Our eight Guides had the chance to try exciting activities such as caving, climbing and sailing. They also enjoyed a cycle ride to the coast and a day out at Blackpool.
“There were also on-site activities such as crafts and international games, and a chance to meet international visitors from the Philippines, Singapore, Australia, Ghana and Nigeria.”
*Guides are aged between ten and 15. Anyone wishing to join Guides for the new term or to help at meetings can contact Ms Salmon on 01609-776884. The group meets on Monday evenings at the Northallerton Scout and Guide Group hut on Malpas Road.
