Guides from all around North Yorkshire took part in a camp on Ripon Racecourse.

The camp, which takes place every other year, was well attended with more than 100 Guides and Brownies camping on the site overnight.

The week long event provided many challenges for the Guides including canoeing, kayaking and cooking on an open fire.

There were lots of craft activities as well as bird watching and archery.

The theme of the week was Alice in Wonderland in tribute to Ripon’s connection with Lewis Carroll.

The camp was officially opened by the White Rabbit and on the Saturday a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party was held with invitations issued to the mayors from Ripon and neighbouring towns.

On Sunday an inflatable It’s a Knockout course provided the fun on a sunnyday.

A special challenge badge was set up for the camp with 12 tasks including a bouncy hopper race needing completion for the purple Cheshire Cat badge.
