Girlguiding Offers Thanks For Successful Camp

October 14, 2019

Girlguiding Bermuda is offering its thanks to those who participated in and helped to ensure that their international camp event – ‘Branches Break Out in Bermuda’ – was a success.

Girlguiding Bermuda Commissioner Karen Trott said, “A total of 100 people attended the camp, which was held on Paget Island from August 19 to August 23, and included delegates from Gibraltar, Falklands, Cayman, St. Helena, North East England, Scotland, and Bermuda.

“It is impossible to individually name the many people who were instrumental in making the camp a success, but we would like to sincerely thank the many volunteers who manned the various sectors of the camp – from the team of nurses, the volunteer chefs and cooks to the volunteers who organized the many activities planned that kept campers entertained.

“Special thanks to the staff of Fun Worxs, Usail and Archery and Outward Bound organizations, to the various families who provided home hospitality, to the Government and the Department of Youth and Sports for the use of CedarBridge Academy and Paget Island, members of staff who ensured a 24-hour safe environment and transportation to and from the island.

“We are most grateful also to the businesses and friends of Guiding who provided us with donations of food, refreshments and other necessities, to all who afforded us media coverage and who helped in so many ways to make the camp the success that it was, with trucking, ground transportation, and more.

“Thanks to all who attended our opening ceremony at which our new President, Deputy Governor Alison Crocket, was pinned to the Somerset Brigade Band and to the Gombeys.

“Finally, thanks to the many leaders and girls who made this centennial camp such a success and to the many leaders, past and present, who continue to make Girlguiding happen.”
