Adventurous girls from across north Yorkshire looked to land, sea and nature for a thrilling weekend with the WOW factor.
The girls were all aged 7–10, and from across Harrogate, Bradford, Nidderdale, Easingwold, and as far afield as Filey and Cleethorpes took a trip to Nidderdale Showground for a very special Brownie camp – called WOW – which stands for Water Outdoors, Wildlife.
During the camp, which took place on 11-12 July, the Brownies embarked on a range of adrenalin-fuelled activities such as canoeing, geocaching, mountain biking, a creepy crawly trail, archery, a visit to a nearby adventure park and dance sessions.
The Brownies also made their own food, toasted marshmallows and learned how to live in tents.
1st Easingwold Brownie Alicia said: “The camp was amazing! My favourite part was canoeing!”
3rd Easingwold Brownie Ella said: “I loved meeting new people from other Brownie groups and making new friends”
Alexa, from Galtres Brownies, said: “I really enjoyed everything especially the archery – I hit the gold circle in the middle of the target!”
Brownies opens up a world of exciting challenges to girls aged seven to 10, giving them the space to try new things and make brilliant friends. Girls take part in a hugely varied weekly programme incorporating everything from stargazing, world issues and science to abseiling, canoeing and zip wiring.
