FISH HOEK GIRL GUIDES
Girl Guides is 102 years old, and it is alive and well in Fish Hoek! Catering from 4½ year olds till adults, girls and women are divided into the following branches:
– Brownies (7 till 10 year old)
– Guides (10 till 14 year old)
– Rangers (14 till 25 year old)
– Trefoil Guild (adult)
Each branch provides an age appropriate programme aimed to equip and empower girls and women through FUN activities: for example outdoor adventures such as camps and hikes, games, creative activities, community involvement, environmental awareness and leadership training. The Guides and Rangers are involved in the Kontiki competition annually, in which a themed raft has to be built and lived in on Sandvlei. Opportunities exist for regional, national and international involvement.
The movement is run by volunteers, which keeps costs involved low. There are various fundraising activities per year to keep this viable. As with all youth organisations, some level of parental involvement is not mandatory, but desirable.

2ND FISH HOEK SCOUT GROUP
The Cub Pack and Scout Troop are both very strong and have a long record of successes, placing them amongst the top Groups in the country. We have about 50 Scouts (11 to 18 years), and 30 Cubs (8 to 10 years). There is often a waiting list, so you should get your name down soon if interested in joining. Activities include hiking, camping, kloofing, rock climbing, river rafting, paintballing, orienteering, mountain biking, go-cart racing and much more. 2nd Fish Hoek has won the annual award for the top Scout Troop in the Western Cape on several occasions. With the Troop having grown so big, we now have to extend our hall to accommodate more Scouts. We are in desperate need of donations of any sort, building material, funds and even physical help.
Scouts meet every Fri 7.15-10pm.

Fish Hoek Teddies
For a heartwarming story about the Fish Hoek Tddies from Guider Eva van Belle see
2009 Highlights: Our Out of School Youth Programme started in Redhill in 2008 has been very successful. Its aim is to equip and support youth to make informed decisions and become employable and independent. 2 of our Redhill participants have received bursaries from False Bay College and have started their respective courses this year. They are doing very well. 13 of our Redhill participants have also found employment and are now able to be independent and look after their families. Due to the success of this programme we have extended it to Masiphumelele. Our participants are growing on a weekly basis and are very enthusiastic. They have started volunteering in Masiphumelele to try and uplift the community. We are currently piloting an Orphans and Vulnerable programme in Masiphumelele; are offering psychosocial support to children aged 4 to13 yrs and are working with 4 creches and a group of 75 students at Ukhanyo Primary School. During 2010 we will continue to implement the Peer Education Programme, Out of School Youth Programme and Orphans and Vulnerable Programme.
