Girlguiding Banchory’s next District Guide Camp is going to be at Netherurd, Girlguiding Scotland’s Outdoor Activity Centre near Peebles and a couple of the girls have been doing some fundraising to help cover costs.

The Guides will get the opportunity to try some adventurous activities but the cost of the trip will be greater than normal.

On hearing this two of the girls, Devan and Zoe, decided that they would do a sponsored swim to raise money and completed three kilometeres in the pool and even swam an extra 500 metres in the time they had allocated themselves.

Both girls have also just returned from a District Guide weekend at Muir Cottage near Braemar where they worked on the “Go For It” “Top Job” looking to the future beyond school as well as doing some crafts, cooking and outdoor games.

All the girls thoroughly enjoyed the weekend and are looking forward to the Summer Camp and a trip to Glasgow for Girlguiding Scotland’s Tartan Gig.
