The first 30 minutes of the meeting were Patrol Time, and each patrol started working on the activities they had planned out before March Break.
- Trillium Patrol - "Rap Around the Clock" - made up raps and songs about safety
- Rose Patrol - "Running" - did timed sprints and blocks of running
- Pansy Patrol - "Time Travel" - looked at photographs from camps in the 1930s-60s and designed their own futuristic campsites
- Daffodil Patrol - "Scrunchies" - measured and cut out fabric to make scrunchies and started sewing
We then had our usual opening and moved into our program. Each girl was given a worksheet and had to complete 3 activities:
- I Could Be... - Girls explored 11 posters about different careers and choose two that interested them to learn more about. They also had the option of adding a different career, and had to explain why they were interested in that particular path. (Posters were created based on interests expressed by the Guides!)
- My Resume - Girls filled out a simplified resume to highlight their talents and abilities.
- Getting the Job - Girls worked in pairs to answer sample interview questions.
- Exploring ... the Law - Here the girls could choose to test their knowledge of the Law or create a short exercise routine.
- Exploring ... the Arts - This station offered a wide variety of activities grouped as Design, Drama & Dance, and Writing & Composing.
- Exploring ... Animals - At this station, the girls had a chose of three different activities - making field notes, creating an activity to teach others about animals, or testing their knowledge with the "Creature Quiz"
- Exploring ... Working With People - We had two options here, getting to know another Guide and learning some basic signs and finger spelling.
