Volunteers on camps

Hi there.
After 19+ years it was rather strange for me to see someone else in the same predicament I was as a mother of a young girl.
Yes I probably was as weary then as you are today. It was for this reason that when we moved down to this area and our oldest actually started camping through girl guides that I became involved as a parent on the camps that both daughters of our were attending.  A good and positive side to protecting our own young I felt then and still do now.  I thank you for your open feelings.
When you are ready there is a way around this predicament you find yourself in.  Yes I hated having the feeling of ‘betwicx and between’. You know what I mean.
The simple way of satisfying all is choosing to staff on the camp activities.  Simply you fill out the Guide Centers Police Check and a seperate Working with children’s check which takes several months.I notify Guide Center that you would like to volunteer.  The volunteer coordinator phones you and you confirm your restrictions on volunteering.
You then work as a team member for just that/those activities of which you have a voice in their design, implimentation etc.
Note: there are restrictions re males attending camp/overnight stays. Some parents have issues with the opposite sex being involved.
I actually found that I got a great amount of laughter, fun and rejuvination from the camp team volunteering I did.

What is a Patrol Activity

Patrol activities can occur either while at Guides or out of Guide meeting times.  Basically the members of the Patrol discuss something, organise it and do it.  They must inform parents and their leader. Their leader must inform the District Leader before the activity begins.

There can be any number of Patrol Activities going on through out the year.

Patrol activities on private land or in private homes have guidelines to them.  So therefore there must be a registered leader of Youth present.

Decisions are made

After discussing what we wanted to do each patrol had more input.  Being asked to go somewhere and discuss what one option was wanted makes you think.

Patrol activity: Multicultural Day

The Older Patrol is having a Patrol Activity on Saturday. Any of the older Patrol Guides interested in going to the Multicultural day on Saturday we are meeting at the Office by 1045 am.  Catching the bus into the Park near Kernot hall, Spending a few hours there and then catching the bus back home.

Do you like finding out things about other countries and the people who now live here?.

Yes the Scarves are at the office and should be worn on the day… from the office into ans back from  the Festival.

The District Leader is going there anyway and will supervise the Patrol.The contact phone number is 0413100230.  Texting is a better way of contact as people cannot hear over the noise of the festival.
