My friend Megan and I from Wicklewood Guides went on a weekend away to Hunstanton YHA for two nights to complete the last part of our Baden Powell Badge – the highest badge you can work towards in Guiding.
The weekend was based around engineering – to show that girls too can be engineers! We had to build things out of spaghetti and marshmallows and then build a water run out of plastic bottles. We also had to cook, wash up and make our own pizzas. It was good fun. We even had to engineer something down on the beach – but we made time for an ice cream too.
I will be presented with my official badge at my next Young Leaders night. We have recently moved up to the senior section (Young Leaders) as we are now too old for Guides.
