THIS year Liphook Guides and Rangers experienced their warmest summer camp ever.
During their week camping in Dorset they visited Monkey World and Brownsea Island as well as having the opportunity to take part in archery, crate stacking, kayaking, bell boats and tunnelling.
Some of the Guides were able to take their Promise on Brownsea Island, which is a very special place for both Girlguiding and Scouts.
Lord Baden-Powell led an experimental camp on Brownsea Island with 20 boys during the summer of 1907.
This camp was based on scouting skills which Lord Baden-Powell had learnt in the army.
As a result of the camp, he wrote a book called ‘Scouting for Boys’ which was used as advice for current organisations such as the Boys Brigade, this soon became the handbook for the Scouts and Guides which were started shortly afterwards.
Everyone is now looking forward to another annual summer camp and hopefully the weather will prove to be just as good.
