Our cosmic party to mark the Big Brownie Birthday!
Around 800 girls from across Cambridgeshire East embarked on a cosmic Star Quest adventure to celebrate the 100th birthday of Brownies.
The girls, all aged seven to 10, came together at Cambridge University’s Churchill College to mark The Big Brownie Birthday with a space-themed spectacular.
The all-girl celebration on Saturday 12th July saw the young stargazers travel through three time zones in the hunt for missing stars – taking part in challenges and enjoying new and exciting adventures en route.
The Star Quest story began with a trip to the past to learn more about the 100-year history of the Brownies, followed by an Out of this World Lunch. In the afternoon, girls chose activity sessions based in the present day, including tackling obstacle courses and climbing walls.
Finally they journeyed to the future, where members of Cambridge University’s engineering department helped them to build and launch rockets.
Leader Val Watts said ‘A BIG THANK YOU to everyone involved in the brilliant Star Quest Day yesterday. We had a fantastic day and even the sun shone brightly. THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN’.
