Branda Eggert is not only excited to be attending the 2014 Spirit of Adventure Rendezvous (SOAR) camp in July, she is very proud, having fund raised to pay her own way.
SOAR is a back-to-basics outdoor camp sponsored by the BC Council of Girl Guides of Canada, for girls aged 11 – 18. The annual camp is located at various places around the province providing campers a chance to see different areas of the province.
The 2014 SOAR camp could see as many as 2,500 participants and activities include traditional camp-type events however the girls may also sign up to try out activities in each of the program areas and go on day trips to tour the local area.
For Branda Eggert, this is her first guiding trip outside the North Cariboo and she has worked very hard to make it a reality. She’s sold many, many boxes of Girl Guide cookies, collected bottles and cans, served food at a spagetti dinner and done what she could to raise the $400 needed to attend 2014 SOAR.
She is the only member of the 4th Quesnel Guides who will be attending the camp, but Branda will have other Quesnel Guides and leaders to share the experience with.
Quesnel Girl Guides will be have 11 representatives, including Branda, at the week-long provincial 2014 SOAR event in Enderby in July.
Branda would like to thank all of you who have bought cookies from her in the Barlow Creek area and all of you who have helped with her many bottle drives.
