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

State Holiday Camps and Activities

The Victorian Girl Guides Association is offering  “Holiday Camps and Activities. The first Holiday Camp will be run in the June/July holidays. It is to be held at Iluka and will have an Art theme.
The camp is open to all girls aged 9 to 13 (for both members and non members) and information is also available online. We will also be sending information on the camp directly to District and Unit Leaders as well as to the girls (9 to 13 year olds).” This information has come from the Victorian Guides CEO April 17th information sent out.
This is an opportunity for the Guides to camp and have activities outside of their own Peer unit and this District.  I encourgae parents to utilize this opportunity and have a brake.
I know that when one of our daughters went on a similar State Guide run camp over the holidays she really enjoyed it.  Wanting to go back the next year.

Qualification training

Recognised that we want a chance to be qualified. So we are looking towards State and Region training calenders. If clashed with normal meeting time apologies will be accepted. Normal meeting time should carry on anyway although may have something tom do with what is being learned at training??? to be decided.

Encouraged to be written by Clear Vision
