Girl Guides SA Inc is an organisation empowering girls and young women to grow into confident, self-respecting, responsible community members through Girl-Led, non-academic programs and activities. The Australian Guiding Program provides opportunities for girls to be the best that can be and harness their individual potential to make a difference. We foster personal characteristics based on our values of respect and collaboration to engender leadership qualities. Our organisation is inclusive and as such has members from diverse cultural backgrounds and all level of physical, intellectual and emotional abilities. We seek to ensure that we can provide programs and activities that children with special needs, disadvantaged backgrounds and or disabilities can participate in and enjoy.
State Camp is the major coming event for Girl Guides SA Inc. The camp is held every 3 years so that the girls will have the opportunities to experience differing activities, sites and facilities throughout their Guiding life.
It is the major state event where Guides, Leaders and other Volunteers come together and experience the wonder of being out in the great outdoors. Learning new skills, have adventurous experiences, making lifelong friendships and recognising the richness of human and environmental diversity in its many forms. It’s an opportunity for girls and women from all walks of life, identities and lived experiences to have a sense of belonging and can participate fully in various activities.
The 2021 Riverdaze State Camp will be held from the 4-8 October, 2021, at Camp Kedron, Barmera, situated on the shores of one of the Riverland’s most scenic lakes, Lake Bonney. Barmera is often described as the jewel of the Riverland with its rich grassy banks and vibrant wetlands, the scenic town will provide Guides with a fantastic opportunity to enjoy aquatic adventures, the Tacker Attack Kids Mud Obstacle Course, Smores by the campfire and so much more. The camp will be full of fun, learning, development and making new friends from around the state.
Girl Guides South Australia is very excited to be able to support and provide a camp in these difficult times. Although our Broken Hill Guides are unable to attend, we will still have a large contingent of South Australian Guides attending from all round the state. Girl Guides are showing how they can overcome challenges and participate in outdoor activities that are inclusive and provide girls with opportunities to be themselves, even in these unprecedented times!
