Activity based online events; interactive, educational and fun packed…
Are you a Rainbows, Beaver, Cubs or Brownies troop leader?
Our amazing interactive LIVE broadcast events have been engaging children and their families in their homes throughout lockdown and beyond, and are a great solution and option for your COVID-19 online scouting and guiding troops.
If your objective is to engage children in creative & fun way, then you will love the nature of these amazing, well organised and fabulously produced interactive LIVE broadcasts.
Bring your troop on these online fun events, and learn to be astronauts and even wizards and witches. Copying training skills and amazing themed quiz fun, all along with an amazing, fully resourced treasure hunt in the individual Beaver, Rainbow, Cub, or Brownies home.
Parents simply download a PDF of 5 clues they can print or trace/ draw up the clues on 5 sheets of paper ahead of the event.
They hide them around the home and then see the excitement unfold as their youngster solves the riddles and searches out each clue point during the 1 hour action packed event, hosted by actor and performers who really know how to engage your troops.
How do we join the event?
These events are ideally accessed through a private facebook group broadcast
(and are also accessible through a private You Tube link for those who are not on Facebook)Safeguarding…
Safeguarding is fully considered by making it a privately accessed, secure online event and having a production team that will monitor and control the access to the group and YouTube link and the comments / chat boxes involved.
During the event parents and or at home adults are encouraged to update the team on their child’s progress and these comments are then fed into Ranger Ron’s ear form him to interact live with children and troops personally throughout the event.
(though this is not essential for the event to work and children can still take part without their adult being active on the feed).
Interactivity and bespoke shout outs for troops….
Leaders can also be online to help get shout-outs to their troop or pack. The production team feed some of the comments in the chat box to the presenter on screen in his ear and this makes the process of shout-outs and LIVE encouragement really effective and seamless, and a good way of enhancing the children’s engagement.
When can we join?
Dates in October @ 6.30 pm for 1 hour. See below.
Children will get lots of shout outs to their troop as a whole, and will be doing the game and event simultaneously with all their fellow troop members, as well as others around the UK, so a great event to be involved in and to feel a part of such a unique and fun experience.
Are there other themes and events available?
In October there are dates available for an amazing, educational Space themed event, that again employs the same treasure hunt and mini adventure and skills format, as the Dinosaur one. Following this there will be a Wizard School themed experience, in the same style. Wizard School style treasure hunt has broomstick riding and wand skills, so a really creative and engaging variant and a really fun treasure hunt game with fabulous riddles to solve.
How does it work? The detail for how parents / leaders join….
These experiences are broadcast live into the home of every Rainbow, Beaver, Cubs or Brownies who is registered with your troop.
The troop leader registers the troop and will be sent a link to send to all parents who then individually register into order to be able to permitted into the private facebook group where the broadcast will be live. If parents prefer to access the event on youtube they will be sent a private access link for the same broadcast and can access it there.
Parents need to download and print or draw/ trace 5 x clue points to hide in their home. Ideally we want them to be with their child during the event, so they can help them in an encouraging way, and post messages about their child’s progress, in the text message comments field of facebook or YouTube, but this is non-essential – as the team will be selecting shout-outs to make during the broadcast, rather than shouting out to all comments. What will work really well is the troop names will get regular shout outs, so is a great way of unifying the troop in the common goal of completing each challenge and clue find.
These events have been tried and tested throughout lockdown by hundreds of parents and their children UK wide, and beyond in other countries too. This ground work means they now represent an amazing virtual night option for your pack in COVID-19 restricted times ahead in 2020.
Safeguarding is well considered by our team. The broadcast is essentially one direction in terms of audio-visual, but the comments feed, allows for comments about the actual progress in individual child’s home, to be commented on by adults. They can comment on things like they have found the clues and where etc.
We will be proactively shouting out to your individual troop to engage them and to celebrate their unified success, at completing the clue finds and knowing details on the topic, be it Dinosaurs, Space or even the world of Wizards!
This LIVE broadcast interactive event is an amazing, proven session –with high quality performers, content, technology and production behind them all and making enjoyment, learning and engagement central at all times!
Great for leaders!
You, as leaders get a night off delivery and a great chance to give your troop a surprisingly special treat in a time period full of challenge and restrictions.
This is a ready made, brilliant night for your troop to enhance your virtual online programme.
All you have to do is sign up and can join the first Dinosaur event in September as a troop completely FREE!
Our charged for Space and Wizard School nights in October are just £3 per screen. You inform us of expected uptake. We invoice you as a troop and you can pay by varied methods, including Paypal, Bacs or cheque. From there we give you everything you need to get Parents and or Adults at home to register, get the clues and be ready for a fun filled evening, that will simply delight their youngsters, as these events are going down exceptional well with brilliant parent and adult feedback.
This lockdown inspired solution has been running for children aged 2-10 across the uk since early April and has now been enabled for the girl guiding and scouting community to access it. We can’t wait for you to experience it!
How it fits in with Scout / Guide values……
- Solving riddles
- Problem solving and finding clues around their home
- Copying actions and skills training from the themed host/ actor/ presenter
- Getting them active – you will be amazed at what we get them copying, from stomping like dino’s to balancing on one leg to represent zero gravity
- Learning science and history and the mesmerising world of dinosaurs, space and even wand skills with Merlin in an active way
- Stimulating their imaginations with time tunnel adventures, to observe realistic dinosaur action scenes, or land a Luna module in the space adventure or riding on a broomstick with Merlin the Wizard
- Learning Ranger Ron’s training routine; uniting them in shared dance and song activity. An experience they all share simultaneously from the safety of their own homes – and will of course talk about significantly in other scouting and guiding meet ups in the weeks and months following the event.
- Will your troop join the big dinosaur treasure hunt uniting scouting and guiding across the UK, or our space adventure or Wizard School treasure hunt – or all 3?
How it works…..
1/ Register your troop via the relevant theme page and sign up page
2/ You will be sent a link to share with parents.
3/ Parents/ adults at home, need to sign up to the link to access the private group and download the clue files for them to print or draw ahead of the event start time.
4/ Parents/ Adults log their child into the private facebook group at home and hide the 5 clue points (which they have printed or drawn) around their home.
5/ Troop leaders can also be logged on and join in with the chat and shout outs on the feed about their troop.
6/ During the session, the child engages in the content and directions from the host Ranger Ron. And the adult at home types in the feed, the child’s progress and feedback on enjoyment if they wish.
7/ Troop leaders can also be typing in this feed and so Ranger Ron will be giving encouragement and shout outs to individual troops by name, through a selection of feed comments delivered to him in his ear by the back room production team.
8/ The treasure hunt element of the session is run whereby a riddle is delivered by Ranger Ron or other theme host, and the child solves it and are then given a minute countdown to find the corresponding clue in their home which their adult has hidden.
A brilliant treasure hunt activity…..
The riddles are designed to be themed, and challenging, but Ranger Ron will help them to solve them, ensuring that all children are able to know the answer and find the correct clue in the time frame allowed for the clue searches.
Each child participant is watching the main creative screen view of the event. They are not engaging themselves in the comments field. And they are not seen. Only the performer can be seen.
The events are all delivered in a private facebook group or private youtube link (depending on how they prefer to access it) and the comments in the feed are all text based and will be monitored throughout the session by a back room production team, meaning anything that is not appropriate is immediately blocked and or that member disconnected. It should be noted that parents will be advised to go full screen on the video on the device the child is viewing also – which means it is only leaders and parents and production team that see the comments.
