Catch up on all the fun with some of the best tweets from the weekend! This year at Wellies and Wristbands we had lovely weather, amazing activities and a whole lot of fun! This year was my second time going to Wellies and Wristbands. It's an amazing opportunity to meet new Guides and Rangers with similar interests in music and activities. My favourite activity was the inflatables, we spent so much time challenging and racing each other! For anyone thinking of going next year, I would just say to try all of the opportunities that are offered such as outdoor activities, media takeovers and band meet and greets! We went on the bumper cars. It was so fun! There's so much going on here at wellies and wristbands we can't possibly fit it all in!! Just some snippets of what has been going on!
How much is it?
What happens at Wellies and Wristbands?
Wellies and Wristbands is a four day, three night residential camp for Guides and Rangers. There are two locations in which it takes place: Girlguiding's Foxlease and Waddow Hall activity centres. It takes place over the bank holiday weekend in August each year, making it perfect for Guides and their leaders! In the day time, a wide variety of activities and experiences are on offer. The wide majority of these are adventurous and quite physical. This includes rock climbing, abseiling, two zip wires, high ropes, crate stacking, kayaking, raft building and canoeing! All of these are completely optional, but are a fantastic way to experience new things. Overall, I think that Wellies and Wristbands is a fantastic camp, which ultimately has no downfalls! Wellies and Wristbands is also a festival at night. It has a stage with different bands and performers for evening entertainment.
