PHOTOS Cooking up camp fun By SARAH DUNN Y ou may have heard of the television show My Kitchen Rules, but what about Paretai Kitchen Rules? The Nelson Region Girl Guiding camp run at Paretai in the Lee Valley this year was based on food and cooking skills. It was originally planned to focus on the girls cooking for themselves, but when more than 100 girls signed up, regional coordinator Josie Macdonald realised the challenge might be a bit much for the adult supervisors. The cooking portion of the camp was based on a series of group exercises which included Saturday afternoon’s Fear Factor. ‘‘Food is everything,’’ Josie said. ‘‘Some of the girls will be good at one thing and not so good at another, it’s all about encouraging [one another].’’ The camp is run every two years, and attracts participants aged 5 to 15 from Atawhai to Wakefield. Everyone: Girl Guides, Brownies, Pippins and helpers gathered for the regional Girl Guide camp at Paretai at Lee Valley over the weekend.
