A group of Brownies from 2nd Brechin Brownies joined nearly 150 Brownies from all over Scotland for a weekend of fun filled activities
The all-girl celebration took place from May 9 to May 11, and saw the young Brownies travel to Templar’s Park, Aberdeen. The trip was part of the Brownies 100th birthday celebrations.
The group enjoyed an action-packed weekend of camping, fun activities and meeting new friends.
Activities included African drumming, a Big Brownie Birthday wide game, party games, crafts such as Chinese dragons, cupcake mobiles, Mardi Gras masks and Chinese drums, campfire and ceilidh dance lessons.
Rhiannon, aged nine, said: “My favourite part of the camp was when we got to play on the African drums.”
Helen Christie, leader, added: “The girls had a great time, meeting new friends and having fun despite the weather.”
Adventures like the Big Brownie Birthday Bash are just part of the range of activities, challenges and exciting opportunities open to Brownies. Girls take part in a hugely varied weekly programme, incorporating everything from stargazing, world issues and science to abseiling, canoeing and zip wiring.
