Supersized Sunflower Sleepover

August 25, 2019

State-wide Sleepover

648 Girl Guides and 159 volunteers from 82 different units have participated in a sleepover that was being held simultaneously across Victoria.

GirlGuidesBallarat SunflowerThe aim of the state-wide event was to attempt to set a new state record for the number of Guide units attending a sleepover on the same night. The figure from 2018 was 35 so we certainly created a new record.

74 Guides and 13 Leaders from the Central Highlands Region attended the Supersized Sunflower Sleepover at Lingbogol.

Throughout the night the girls chatted with other Guide units via Skye sessions, all enjoying their own Sunflower Sleepover. A special Skype session was organised with the Guides Victoria State Team.

We also:

  • played games outside
  • gathered around a campfire and learnt new songs
  • decorated cupcakes as sunflowers
  • make and ate armpit fudge
  • coloured pictures
  • tied special knots
  • word find
  • board games
  • took snapshots with a sunflower background
  • enjoyed a brekky of pancakes

……. and a lot of late night chatter.
