This year, the girls at 2nd Alton Girls' Brigade were lucky enough to be joined by four girls from the 1st Farnham Company. The new additions to the group made it a camp that the girls won't forget as we made so many memories with each other. The week was filled with fun activities like rafting, grass sledging, canoeing and lots of others. The weather was nice enough for the senior girls to camp out one night which we really enjoyed. We finished the week off with soup, marshmallows and songs round a campfire. (Sophie Richards)

My name is Amy and I am a member of 1st Farnham Girls' Brigade. At the end of May we went to a camp with Sue Wells, our captain, and 2nd Alton Girls' Brigade. We had an amazing time doing archery, geocaching, orienteering, bouldering, rafting and lots lots more. We all slept together in a big room with bunk beds and ate in a big dining room; the food was delicious. It was all great fun! I got a certificate for being a water baby as I seemed to fall in the water a lot when rafting and kayaking!! The girls from Alton were great and we made lots of new friends.

Our summer meetings finish on Monday 17th July and we re-start on Monday 11th September.
