Girlguiding Leicestershire's LEAP Over is here
Join us in a camp with a difference this Easter. Girls and leaders are invited to “Leap over” somewhere that is not their bed during the Easter holidays.
What we need you to do:
Send out the attached invitation to your girls. They can invite their friends to join in too.
Ask the girls to feedback to you about the things they have done to complete their Leap Over.
Book in by sending back a booking form. This is a list of all the girls you wish to receive a virtual certificate to say that they have joined. Please add their names as they would wish to have them on their certificate. The certificates will be emailed back to you for distribution. You might want to send the form back after they have done their Leap Over so you know who has taken part.
There is also the option of a badge for £1. Please indicate on the booking form if you/your girls would be interested.
Join in with the fun too. Here are some suggested activities and colouring pages to get you started.
Instructions to leaders
Things to remind the girls:
Always Leap Over with the knowledge of your parents/carers.
Be careful with real fire. Always have a bucket of water at the ready.
Remember to observe social distancing and stay at home.
Use social media appropriately, following guidelines carefully.
We’d love to see your photos of your Leap Over. You can email them or you can send them on social media - Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Please remember to make sure you have permission to share the photos if they have people in them.
