Hazelwood and Churchill (Victoria, Australia) local Girl Guide information noticeboard.

The Pioneer camp


By the time the Guides had finished practising the knots that they wanted to learn how to tie a great many had been left to learn at a later date.

The fact that the Guide were also organising a Pioneer camp should have warned the leaders what might have been forming in the Guides minds. You got it they were going to put their knots into practice and make an obsticale course while at camp. So a great deal of time was put aside learning the knots, whipping, splicing and other rope work involved in making gadgets, equipment and used in safety measures.

The Leaders paper work was up to date.The menu and rules had been created by the guides.  A Guides own organised, a campfire prepared, a night hike [complete with spooky animal noises and torches].  Camp duties and camp Patrols were up on the notice board. Along with the fire drills and emergency evacuation procedures.

As the pioneer camp drew nearer the equipment had to be sorted, the tents organised, along with the cooking equipment, Camp and Unit flags made. The World Guide Flag was packed to be taken as well. The program had been sorted out, transport arranged and food was purchased.  The camp site at Burnett Park was checked and where the camp would actually take place was arranged.  All was set.

There were a few surprises going to take place though.
