Programme Fun

Leaders – we can help you fulfil various parts of your  guiding programme.

Our volunteers can run sessions for your unit, either at the ARC or in your meeting place, and we have various boxes of hands-on archive materials you can borrow.

There is one ‘Traditions’ handling box available for each section. Each box contains a collection of items to run a traditional meeting appropriate for your  section, as well as games and old uniforms to try on. We also have a campfire blanket and quiz for each section.

If you want a specific theme, such as World War One, World War Two – or a mixture of both – we can put together a special box for you. We have reminiscence boxes on a camp theme, which are ideal for inter-generational work.

And if you have a specific topic in mind we have a wide range of memorabilia available for you to use.

Examples of sessions we have run for units or groups include: 

  • Water Safety, linked to the Swallows and Amazons books by Arthur Ransome
  • Mr Gruber’s Antique Shop (linked to the Paddington Bear stories)
  • Tenderfoot Test – A chance for guides to learn and then see if they can pass their Tenderfoot test as it was in the 1940s.   There is a badge available for this.

We even have our own resource cards to support the UMAs (Unit Meeting Activities). Download these (coming soon) to use in your unit or come and visit us so that your girls can learn about guiding traditions and skills.
