to any of the participants. Units will be responsible for contacting parents/home contact
in the event that one girl falls ill. In the event of a large scale incident the home contact
may be contacted by a member of the event team.

Units will be allocated to a group and given a timetable for activities. The size of the
group will be dependant on the number of participants, this is anticipated to be
between 30-70 girls plus leaders.
The leader will receive a Corgi Treasure Hunt card and Commonwealth flags for
colouring. The treasure hunt is designed to occupy the time delay at the start and end of
