Freezing temperatures have arrived in Ontario just in time for our outdoor skating party!
Girls will earn their Swim/Skate badge for coming out with us, and part of their cookout badge as well, but the real purpose of this is just to have a night out and enjoy ourselves!
We are encouraging parents and siblings to stay and play as well, partially for practicality, but the more the merrier!
One of our unit leaders lives in the country and she and her husband build this outdoor rink each year for their family, so the Guide and Scout units are greatly benefiting from their hard work 🙂
The unit is providing hotdogs, buns, hot chocolate and marshmallows. Our hosts are providing the ice and a bonfire and roasting tools. We have emailed parents to remind them of the location change for our meeting, and to outfit their daughter with skates and helmets!
Should be a fun night, and it is basically a night off for leaders since we don’t have much to plan or organize 🙂
