The Masterton Brownies enjoyed their Heat Camp on 6-7th of April 2013. Unfortunately the heat left the Wairarapa that week and we had to shift our camp from tents at Mt Holdsworth to Nga Totara Hall indoors. We all still managed to have heaps of fun and were very glad of the fireplace and the wood which was nice and dry from last year!
Here are some of the Challenge Nine Poems written by the girls:
Poem by Annabelle Denholm while on a bush walk during Brownie Camp in April 2013
Green trees swaying, muddy ponds covering red and brown rocks shining bushes rustling sticks piling up by brunches snapping like a crackle of a bone snap feet shuffling along the rocky path. I wish I could find more white daises moving faintly wild berry and flowers surround me.
Poem by Cadey Sims while on a bush walk during Brownie Camp in April 2013
Pretty trees swaying dark green stream flowing I hear my feet stomping against the ground. I listen to the birds singing the Tui bird tweeting as I throw stones into the stream it makes a plop! Plop! The wind seems to call me, in the distance I hear sounds of laughter, joy and cheering, wild flowers surround me with the sweet, sweet smell of honey and a smell of freedom. I can hear a tweet, tweet, tweet, a wind picks up leaves blown everywhere. My feet stumble against the bridge it makes a pitter patter. I find a high point I lookout I can see everything. I saw a pretty green and blue Pukeo and a duck I get lost I find my friends we find our way back hooray!

Pencarrow Region welcomed just over 200 girls and families from every district and section in the Region up at Kaitoke Regional Park in Upper Hutt on 23 February.
The girls did a rotation of activities, such as sumo-wrestling with tyres, parachute games, giant jenga, yacht racing and rock sculptures.
Following this everyone was invited to participate in a massive relay race; sack jumping, and egg and spoon and three-legged racing , before each team had to sing Taps to show they had finished the race!
As you can see lots of fun and laughter was enjoyed by everyone.
