Girlguiding Leicestershire’s big “Leap Over” that we have organised for the girls and leaders in the county during the Easter holidays.
The challenge is on to sleep over somewhere new – in a pop up tent in the sitting room, a blanket fort on the landing or a shelter in the garden. Members will also have to make their own meal (and wash it up!), enjoy a real or pretend campfire and write a letter or card or draw a picture for someone who might be on their own.
Their reward is a certificate and a badge.
This initiative has proved enormously popular. Girls and leaders couldn’t wait to get started and photos have come flooding in of dens and tents and s’mores cooked over a firepit.
Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and Rangers from around the country and abroad have wanted to become involved in the adventure with enquiries from Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Yorkshire, Wiltshire and Australia!
