Pack Holiday




This weekend, I went on my first Brownie Pack Holiday as an adult. And my goodness, did it bring back memories of going as a child - I was apparently the only girl who wasn't particularly into Disney princesses at that age, and I still haven't watched most Disney films, so I was a little out of my depth with having to be Sleeping Beauty for the weekend.

Hiking through the woods, though? That I can do! We had to go 'off road' to avoid lakes of mud at the bottom of the hill, so there was a little unexpected climbing. The weather was beautiful and, as well as walking and doing crafts, we went grass sledging one afternoon.

Now my knee aches, I'm very tired, and I have to finish packing for Colorado. But it was well worth it for all the Brownie smiles - and later, I can apparently get a camping license to take the 10-year-olds in tents, which would be fabulous (I was watching the Guides in their camp with just a little twinge of envy).

Rachel, that must have been sooo cool. And of course, if you weren't already there, this will elevate you to "cool" status with your neice. Good for you!

I love it, as I never got to belong to such groups, but went camping more often than many as a child...

i really want to go camping one day just so I can enjoy the great outdoors but I'm terrified of the bugs that will join me in my tent,...
