The 82nd Montreal Guiding Unit and 1st Montreal Sparks Unit from Monklands District invited the brand new 1st Mile End Unit from Liesse District for their very first Girl Guide sleepover.
It was a multi-unit, multi-branch (Sparks, Brownies, Guides and Pathfinders), multi-district, bilingual sleepover! The theme of the sleepover was forensic sciences and the girls completed the CSI Challenge from BC.
On Friday night after a few icebreaker games, the girls set off into a round robin to learn about some different aspects of forensic science: fingerprint analysis, handwriting analysis, hair analysis, codes/puzzles and a Kim’s game to test their observation skills. For a craft, the girls made a mini evidence kit.
Saturday morning, following breakfast made by the Guides and Pathfinders, it was discovered that the Brownie Toadstool and Owl had been “stolen”! With the knowledge and skills the girls had learned Friday night, the girls used the clues/evidence that had been left behind to solve the mystery of who had stolen the Toadstool and Owl.
New friends were made and fun was had by all! The Guiders of the 3 Units have already started to come up with ideas for future joint events to do in the spring!
