In order to take girls on a Pack Holiday at least one leader must hold a Pack Holiday licence, also known as the Going Away licence. Here at 2nd Sedgefield Brownies we have 3 leaders with Pack Holiday licenses.
To hold this licence the leader must also have completed their Leadership Qualification and hold an active role as a leader or commissioner. For our pack, Brown Owl (Jo Tinker), Little Owl (Caroline Morrison) and Elf Owl (Elaine MacIntosh) all have licences.
We always take a qualified First Aider. At 2nd Sedgefield Brownies we have two qualified First Aiders who hold these qualifications as part of their job (a nurse and a teaching assistant) and also three other leaders hold the First Response First Aid qualification.
We also need a qualified cook. This is Tawny Owl (Jo Lazonby) and she cooks all our food for the weekend.
We are indeed a well qualified unit!
