      Rainbows day trip to Longleat      
The Rainbows enjoyed a very sunny day at Longleat on Sunday 14th July, they enjoyed going on the safari boats to see the seals and gorillas and going on the train. The best bit for lots of them was getting the chance to cool down by playing in the water jets, followed by a trip round the safari park to see the big animals.

     Guides summer camp        
This years summer camp was at Woodhouse Park, Almondsbury, Nr Bristol from Thursday 1st August to Monday 5th August. We had a 4 seasons themed camp with each day being a different season. Spring saw the Guides doing an easter egg hunt around the camping field, summer the children got to "play in the park" by going around the adventure course and getting REALLY muddy! They also enjoyed cooking outdoors with backwoods cooking and in the evening having a BBQ. Autumn saw the girls having a go at archery and then enjoying some autumn themed crafts. For Winter they enjoyed running around trying to complete a christmas present hunt wide game, then they made christmas tree decorations and decorated badges. In the evening they were all given a christmas sock with gifts inside and then played a christmas present game.

    Rainbows trip to Santaland at Wookey Hole     
On Sunday 8th December members of 1st Colerne Rainbows enjoyed a magical day out at Wookey Hole's Santaland. They explored the fairy-light lit caves where they met elves, Scrouge, Snow White and Peter Pan. The girls found their way through the mirror maze before enjoying a lovely cooked lunch and then going to watch a fantastic Christmas Panto Circus show put on by the children of the Wookey Hole circus. After some time playing in the two play rooms it was time for the girls to line up ready to see Father Christmas, who let all the girls have a present! The Rainbows then got to see some of Father Christmas's reindeer
before getting to try some lovely Wookey Hole cave cheese!
