Camp is fast approaching! Whenever I start to panic, I remember that at least I’m not the one doing my licence. (That would be Queen’s Guide Buddy, and she’s doing a great job of it.)
With another leader, I’m in charge of the programme. We’ve made our magic spreadsheet of activities and kit, and this week I went to the hall to start getting things together.
This meant delving into my unit’s cupboard and storage crates. Argh! Suddenly the memories came flooding back: the time we made Christmas cards and hastily shoved all the coloured paper away at the end of the meeting; the time I was rummaging in the crate, spilled sequins everywhere, and didn’t have time to gather them up again; the crafts QGB and I ran at Region camp, which are still in the bottom of the crate where we left them last summer… yeah, I think we need to sort our storage out.
On the plus side, I was pleased to find things I wasn’t sure if we had, like felt, glittery card, and six colanders. I got together a couple of boxes for camp, and felt much better for having made some non-last-minute preparations and ticked things off the kit list.
