Like many other leaders, we were disappointed when we could no longer meet with our Brownies due to lockdown. Alas, this was not going to stop us, and thanks to all the virtual technology at our fingertips we began to plan our pack holiday as normal. In preparation for this, we arranged a zoom unit meeting beforehand to ensure that it would be feasible to undertake, and it was a success - hooray!
We planned the whole weekend then set up individual packs with general information, programme, menu, daily jobs and all the resources that would be needed for each participant. The parents came around to our gardens to collect the packs from an acceptable social distance and then it was all systems go.
Friday night at 5.30pm there was a welcome zoom session to set the scene and ask the girls to go off and create their own dens to sleep in during the weekend. We zoomed again at 8pm for a campfire and hot chocolate from our dens. The slight time-lapse was interesting when singing but it added to the fun!!
