THEME: Coping with Anxiety and Changing Environments
Introduce your MissAdventurer to surfing.
When I (Caroline) found surfing it was like finding another part of my soul I never knew I had. It's that good. They say only a surfer knows the feeling and it's true - Surfing is a sport which is powerful beyond measure, not to mention healthy, freeing and challenging.
For this MissAdventure Morning, the girls will spend part of their time learning basic surfing skills, from reading the ocean and conditions, to pop up techniques on the sand, before jumping in the waves and learning to pop up and ride along.
Drawing from their surf, the girls will then engage in the 'fire side chat' element key to all MissAdventure Mornings. This conversation for this session will revolve around coping with anxiety & changing environments.
Meanwhile parents are invited to partake in their own facilitated conversation around 'How to Raise Brave Girls and in this MissAdventure Morning, we’ll be addressing the changing environment around ‘Social Media’ as well as why kids today feel so anxious. They’ll also be expected to jump in the waves too and take part in some of the active adventure components.
Taking place on the beach, it's important to realise that this adventure is somewhat weather dependent. We will be watching the forecast and wave conditions like hawks. Assume it is going ahead unless we explicitly tell you it isn't. In the unlikely event that it is cancelled, the event will be rescheduled to take place on the 7th October - keep your diary free)
