Introduce your MissAdventurer to skateboarding (all levels welcome). For this adventure, we've teamed up with the world class coaches & crew from iSkate Australia who will give the girls an introductory lesson skateboarding workshop at their incredible indoor skate park in Artarmon.
What is MissAdventure & How Does It Work?
MissAdventure Mission: To empower girls through adventure, action sports & the outdoors & instil them with a deep sense of self-worth beyond their appearance.
We design active, adventure workshops that introduce girls to new activities, be it rock climbing, surfing, skating, hiking etc so that they can see first hand how strong and capable they are.
We then pair these lessons and activities with an aligned theme (For skateboarding it’s ‘Confidence’) as a conduit to big, wholehearted conversations. We call these debriefs “Fireside Chats” (think the openness, relaxed, sharing vibe of a campfire) and explore issues around self-worth, healthy body image, mental health, resilience, positive relationships etc with the kids. Issues that matter to her now and will matter even more as she begins to weather the storm of adolescence.
Aside from connecting with their daughters, parents are invited to partake in our ‘How to Raise Brave Girls’ forum where we discuss strategies to raise happy, resilient and balanced girls in an ever-changing, increasingly superficial world.
These discussions and curriculums are designed and facilitated by child psychologists, therapists, teachers, parents and experts. Our adventures are operated by qualified coaches and organisations.
• Kids these days spend less time outside than maximum security prisoners
• Girls as young as 8 are worried about having the 'perfect' body
• Half of mental illness begins before the age of 14
We believe #AdventureIsTheAnswer
Theme of MissAdventure Skates: Self Confidence
Girls: Creating confidence, backing ourselves, giving it a shot and rising up after our falls
