Rainbows and Brownies go Wild at Beamish

Sunday 19th May 2013

It was a quiet, misty and murky morning at Beamish, and then 200 Rainbows and 66 Brownies arrived from near and far – Wow.  Their chatter, excitement and expectant faces were a sign of the fun to come.

They all met together in the stunning Winter Garden for a welcome and brief from Alex the site manager, then off they all went to their activities…. Shelter building, archery, zumba, low ropes, treasure hunt, climbing, birds of prey, bugs and stuff, a Magic show and lots more…….  there was a buzz, laughter and chatter.

The girls went from session to session with a break for lunch and then the sun came out.  The sessions continued as the temperature rose; coats came off, jumpers came off and we all enjoyed a beautiful summers day.

We wondered whether the day may be too tiring for the Rainbows……… well was a silly thought!!!!  The girls (and leaders) didn’t seem to want to go home.  The girls enjoyed running on the grass and some groups stayed longer to enjoy the adventure playground, there wasn’t any nodding off on the bus home either.

All in all Rainbows and Brownies love Adventurous activities and going Wild.
