January Nitanisak District Guides

Here’s some of what we were up to in November and December.

The 110th Guides have had a fun year so far. We went tent camping in September and, although it turned out to be a cold and snowy weekend, we had a lot of fun with our Harry Potter-themed camp.

The girls chose to go bowling for our Halloween party and we recently participated in a fun day at the U of C where we learned all about Science, Technology, engineering and Math and completed some fun activities.

We ran our own plebiscite for the Olympic debate and our results were the same as the general vote.

We are excited about our upcoming sleepover in April at the Telus Science center in keeping with our Science theme for the year. We are also planning a learn to kayak day in the spring along with a winter camp in February with our fun and enthusiastic group of girls omg grades 4, 5, and 6.

The 151st Brownies started the year with two camping trips already (one tenting and one residential in a cabin).

For Thanksgiving, our girls made gratitude jars which they decorated and can add anything they want to it! They answered questions like things they are thankful for, who they are grateful for and what made them smile today.

Our Brownie unit also made a trip to the Apple Store in Market Mall to learn about technology and make a movie on the iPad! We had a fun Halloween costume party with the Guides and are planning on going to a dental office to learn about oral hygiene.

We are going to be doing a service project for The Alex next month where the girls will learn to give back to the community in the season of giving. We will also dress up and enjoy a potluck supper with our moms in December.

In our upcoming meetings, we will do some cooking in the kitchen, learn some new Guiding songs, sell our classic chocolate and vanilla cookies and plan for two more sleepovers!

It has been a fun and busy year and we look forward to every week together, as the girls have become really good friends.
