On the weekend of 5 – 7th September, 14 Guides and 6 leaders gathered at Guide House to participate in Western Australia’s first Free Being Me camp. The Guides from Doubleview Dolphin Girl Guides, Seward Girl Guides and Padbury Adventurer Girl Guides participated in the curriculum appropriate to their age across the weekend as well as other general camp activities.
Favourite activities included “Mirror Mirror”, “Make your own Media: Magazine Cover” and “The Pot of Gold”. Girl’s also commented that they “liked being able to say their opinions without worrying”. All agreed that other Guides should participate in the program and most said they wanted to do it again.
All Guides left camp with a plan to complete their Take Action project to earn their Free Being Me badge. We are currently planning for future Free Being Me camps in WA to allow Guides to participate in this amazing program.
