What is a Patrol Activity

Patrol activities help the Guides further develop within their peer group.  In order to actually ‘do’ an activity their must be several things happening at once.

Firstly their must be registered members of Guides participating.  Friends may attend sometimes.  (Up to three times then they must be a member to do any more visits to Guides programs and / or Patrol Activity visits – inclusive. The activity must be interesting, challenging and fun.  Something to be talked about and shared.

Having something special occurring keeps the friends interested in what you are doing.This way the friends will want to join in on the planning too.

Patrol activities are overseen by adults.

Patrol activities are not always held at Guides. These adventures can be to all sorts of interesting place, events, activities and services. Sometimes Patrol Activities can be something that is a small part of something else happening.  Like doing the food shopping before a come or cook out. Supporting a friend with a sport endevour, Going to the pictures together.  Going shopping anyway even hiking in the bush.

So you can see that to achieve a Patrol activity

  • Management of any activity is a learned art.  
  • Management of people has many different variables.
  •  Time management is a different senaro altogether.

28th October 2010

From now on when we go into Guides we get the bag of scarves and put them near the door. Then we put one on for the night. After the meeting we leave them behind near the door…but not in the bag.  That way the ones worn will be washed and made ready for nest week. 

Our next job is to get the Unit flag stand ready to erect the flag.  The Flag pole goes in the North side of the Building.  That is where the roof is highest near the office door.  A compass can be used to check this out.

After Guide and before the Color Party people put their scarves away they must put the Flag and its pole and the stand away.
