As part of the Brownie’s Writer Badge Amy Worrall, aged 8, has described her weekend away with her Brownie Unit……
On Friday 6th April, 2nd Copthorne Brownies arrived at PGL in East Sussex for the start of an amazing weekend of fun. We started the evening with a game of Golden River – a colourful experience followed by yummy fish and chips.
We were so excited that night that sleep was almost impossible. On Saturday, we woke early for breakfast. Quickly ready for the day, we built a raft. Sophie and I decided to jump into the lake just to see how cold it was – it was freezing! Then we moved to the next activity which was archery – my first (and only so far) bull’s-eye. I was amazed.
Lunch was ready by now, we were all so hungry. After lunch we all went to the shop and most came away with a new teddy to take home. Mine is called “Ted”. We then all went back to our cabins and had a chill.
That evening after Brown Owl said good night, we crept out and went to visit Tiny Owl’s cabin. She had got us all some lovely treats for a midnight feast. So shhh don’t tell Brown Owl.
Even though we were tired, we still were up early again and took part in climbing and orienteering on Sunday.
We had a fun, exciting and amazing weekend.
