MissAdventure Circus Sports (open to 7-14yrs)
Introduce your daughter to Physical Theatre and Circus Sports
For this adventure, we’ve teamed up with the team from Swoop Physical Theatre who will give the girls an introductory lesson in circus sports (think aerobalance, human pyramids, tight rope walking, mini trampoline & hula hooping)
(All levels welcome, no previous experience is required as training will be delivered by instructors)
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 Circus Sports it’s ‘Support & Lifting Each Other Up) 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 Circus: The Importance of Support & Lifting Each Other Up
Using our circus sports adventure to connect with one another and break down any barriers, we will then jump into some deeper conversations:
Girls Workshop Covers: The importance of finding our tribe, asking for help/support when we need it, how to best support our friends and the art of lifting each other up.
Parents Chat Covers: The best way to support your daughter through adolescence, how to foster and support her self esteem, practical tips and helpful insights into her stage of development.
*These discussions and curriculums are facilitated by child psychologists, counsellors and mental health workers.
