What’s happening?

At Sparkle and Ice, Guides, members of The Senior Section 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
  • be wowed by a closing fireworks display.

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 requires no Going Away With Licence – so you can focus on spending time with your girls and getting stuck into the activities.

How much does it cost?

£55 per person for the event, with £15 for the additional Friday night.

Event ticket includes:

  • campsite fee - you'll need to bring your own tents
  • food from Saturday lunch to Sunday lunch
  • onsite activities and challenges.

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