Nearly 500 members will take over Fremantle on Friday October 10!
We’re starting with meeting on the Fremantle Esplanade, anbd the day will include visits to Round House, Bather’s Bay, Shipwreck Gallery, activities on the Esplanade, and for the 14+ Guides there will be a $10 op shop challenge.
The Official closing will take the form of ‘the Old and the New.’ It will include a traditional ‘campfire’ with the 10 top campfire songs. Then we will celebrate the future of Guiding with a concert in the park where a fantastic 15 year old singer will perform for us.
Looking forward to seeing everyone at the Jamboree!
