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

Tents, team work, camps, and life skills learned on the Hazelwood South Reserve

The Hazelwood [South ] Hall is right next to a public reserve. The Guides of the Hazelwood and Churchill Girl Guides use this reserve area to practice putting up tents. Although the Hazelwood [and Churchill] District has both moder lightweight tents when leadership and team training re camping is required the older canvas kitchen flies and canvas tents come out for erection.

When the Region camp qualification camp, the Ev Graham camp, is run the Guides rope off an area in which to physically view where they have planned to utilize their camp equipment on the site size requirement.

Team work is important as without a semblance of planning, order and working together the camp moral is deemed low enough to close the site.
When working with outdoor camp site plans a large area is required while the Guide are kinesthetically shown so that the patiently learn the skills required.
