This is our first time at Sparkle and Ice. The girls are loving it!  It seems really well organised and the activities are brilliant. The instructors are amazing - very patient with the girls. If you’re thinking about booking next year, do it – but be prepared for cold weather! - Shirley and Linda, Isle of Wight

What’s happening?

At Sparkle and Ice, Guides, Rangers - and their leaders -  will be immersed in our very own winter wonderland.

Alongside a programme of adventurous activities – including rock climbing, abseiling and tunnelling – girls will learn vital survival skills to help them take on extreme weather conditions. They’ll also have a chance to:

  • Get crafty with winter-themed make-and-dos
  • Pit themselves against our assault course
  • Keep their balance on our crate stacking challenge

Keen campers can arrive on Friday night to get ahead of the crowds, while others can join us for a 9am start on Saturday morning.

This event doesn't require a Going Away With Licence – so you can focus on spending time with your girls and getting stuck into the activities.

Event ticket includes:

  • Campsite fee - you'll need to bring your own tents
  • Food from Saturday lunch to Sunday lunch
  • Hot drinks
  • Onsite activities and challenges

Optional Friday night ticket includes dinner, camping fees and breakfast.
