Sixteen girls from a variety of Bridgnorth schools had an action-packed week trying out canoeing, rifle shooting, raft building and sailing as well as a chill-out zone of crafts and pampering as part of a Girl Guiding camp. The experience included a camp set up as it would have been in in 1960s, and the girls all agreed that they are happy to have up-to-date equipment and flushing toilets! One of the highlights of the week was the 240m zip wire, which gets up to 40mph, and the 3G swing, which gave them a great adrenaline rush.
