Camp Out Weekend For 1st Mid Suffolk Boys Brigade & Girls Association
Company section of 1st Mid Suffolk Boys Brigade and Girls Association were due to go to a Unite Camp weekend with other brigades at Feldon Lodge, head office for BB in June. We decided to loan out tents and allow the children to camp in their own gardens and enjoy and take part in Unite online. The children thoroughly enjoyed the experience and toasted marshmallows, made hot chocolate, took part in quizzes and scavenger hunts.
The children have been thinking of others with their activities and have taken part in helping at home, washing the car, making cups of tea and creating care packages for care homes. During Volunteer Week our leaders were thanked by letters from the children. The children are continuing to enjoy their online activities and bronze, silver and gold medals have been awarded to the children taking part for activities they have completed. We are hoping to present the medals to the children at a big party when we can meet again, but for now the children are receiving certificates through the post once they have achieved each medal. We shall be creating a book of the photos and the children’s memories of Lockdown 2020.
Please take a look at our public Facebook page to take part in the activities and see the fun we are having.
