£240.00 for a 2 – 3 hour session with two groups (£120.00 per group)

The workshop consists of a circus instructor and circus equipment (which is tailored according to age groups, space available and length of session time). Examples include juggling balls, rings and scarves, spinning plates, diabolos, flower sticks, and larger equipment such as stilts, fun wheels, pedal racers, unicycles & mini-bikes. Equipment used will be at the discretion of your instructor.

With the volume and variety of equipment available, we can take a group of up to 30 children/young people per workshop, keeping them involved and engaged at all times.

NEW PROGRAMME – NOTES

As you are aware, the new programme doesn’t include a Circus Performer Badge. However, approx 60% of the total Unit time is for the new programme, leaving 40% at the leaders discretion. Girlguiding UK have confirmed that bespoke badges are available and they can be obtained from bespoke@girlguiding.org.uk.

NEW PROGRAMME – UNIT MEETING ACTIVITIES

There are lots of fun, ready-to-go unit meeting activities of varying lengths and styles, which can be dropped into gaps in your programme to add balance and variation.
They’re designed to encourage all girls to get involved and participate in the activity. You may want to use a 10-minute activity at the end of your unit meeting or do a longer activity to introduce girls to a topic that you are going to explore as a unit. And they all fit under our six programme themes.

NEW PROGRAMME – SKILLS BUILDERS

Skills builders are designed to stretch and challenge girls of all abilities and enable them to develop core skills throughout their guiding journey.
Skills builders are specially designed to help girls develop core skills as they travel from Rainbows to Brownies and on to Guides and Rangers.
