    Oh my!! That is a HUGE number of nights away! I don’t think that i’d be anywhere near that, even counting every overnight i’ve done since I was a Brownie myself! I’ve never done any long camps. I think I once did a 5 day camp in Guides but other than that it’s been 3 days max.

    I’m so jealous of your international visits!! I can’t even imagine just taking the girls out of the country!! I think I need to move to the UK instead of this middle of nowhere island I live on! Italy for Guide camp??! WOW! 🙂

    And I just love some of the camp themes! Ancient Eygpt, Sound of Music, Big Brother! Do you remember any details from them? They sound like fun!!

      International trips are great! Not that I’ve ever led one; I really admire the leaders who do, while I tag along and help and enjoy.

      I enjoyed remembering all the themes I’ve done as I wrote this post…think I might do some more posts on them, and on themes in general, watch this space 🙂
