Thanks to a successful fundraiser held earlier this spring, the Clover Valley Girl Guides took part in a district camp out at Lake KawaKawa in Hope over the May 29-June 1 weekend.

More than 116 girls and leaders attended the camp.

Girl Guides of Canada and Ford Canada raised more than $2,900 to send girls to camp this year. On April 12, the Cloverdale United Church parking lot hosted Ford’s Drive One 4UR Community Fundraiser, where participants were able to test drive five new vehicles.

For every test drive, Ford donated $20 to Girl Guides in Surrey and Langley.

The money raised  will also help SOAR patrols from Surrey and Langley attend a camp in July.

SOAR, or Spirit of Adventure Rendezvous, takes place in Enderby, B.C., July 19-26. The event is expected to draw 2,500 participants from across B.C. where they’ll get back to basics by tent camping, cooking their own meals, and mixing with other girls from across B.C.,

The girls will also take part in in a range of outdoor activities and indoor activities, from learning about living a healthy, active life to learning about the environment, science, service, the fine arts, and waterfront activities.
