AIMS> This program is being developed to support and enable adult (18 and over) women members of both Scouts and Girl Guides an opportunity to develop their vertical skills (in particular abseiling) in an all-female environment. It is limited by age in this instance so that we can focus on increasing the capacity of leaders to be able to bring others on the vertical journey.
The Introductory day is to provide an opportunity for female members of both organisations to meet and network and explore the excitement of abseiling in an all-female environment.
Enjoy a picnic in a bushland setting, try abseiling and if you are keen there will be a series of 6 training days in the new year to get you started on a qualification pathway.
Plan to walk in from the Thorpe Rd gate between 0800 and 0815 to arrive at the campsite before 0845.
All participants must be preesent for the introduction and briefings.
