Girl guides get creative

Girl Guides and girls interested in joining spent four days learning and creating their own visual arts and performance pieces which they showcased for family, friends, media and VIP’s – including the Deputy Mayor of Pittwater Cr Kylie Ferguson. Vispera was a pioneer Girl Guides camp designed by the Guides themselves and a success with the Girls, Parents and leaders.

The Guides were tutored by an array of talent, one of which was the famous Sydney comedian Dan Ilic. During the Camp they faced workshops, optional morning energy- boosting exercise and recreation time set aside to enjoy all the facilities the Sydney Training + Conference Centre Ingleside had to offer.

The groups were split into dance, drama, music, craft and art. On the showcase day some displayed their new found talents while others exhibited a new depth to their existing talents.

The showcase began with a drama piece which was followed by music and a grand finale performance. Guests were then taken through the visual arts area to discover sculptures, paintings, drawings and quilts. This finale gave the girls a core focus to build confidence, and engage in the key elements of the Girl Guides program.

Girl Guides Australia is part of a world-wide voluntary organisation which promotes and encourages the development of girls and women. Their Mission is to enable girls and young women to grow into confident, self-respecting, responsible community members. Girls and women over the age of 5 are invited to join.
