Let it snow! What we got up to at Sparkle and Ice
There was plenty of frosty fun – and even some sun – at our extreme winter camp last weekend. Our members give us the lowdown.
Last weekend girls from across the UK proved that our members really are a hardy bunch
They braved the recent snow to enjoy our extreme winter camp, Sparkle and Ice, at our activity centres Blackland Farm, Foxlease and Waddow Hall. They were rewarded with lots of frosty fun including zip-lining, inflatables, abseiling, fireworks, REAL snow and even some glorious winter sunshine. And of course there were campfires and s'mores to warm everybody up ❄
We asked girls and their units to share what they got up to with us on Twitter #SparkleAndIce. Here’s the highs (and the low temperatures).
There was REAL sparkle and ice
The recent snow brought some real-life winter magic to Sparkle and Ice.

Ways to warm up and keep cosy
Whether round a campfire, with a hot chocolate or wrapped up warm in a tent, there's nothing like getting cosy when it's cold.
