This weekend the 1st Sparks (along with a few Brownies) spent the night at Club Aviva gymnastics centre in Coquitlam. The girls had a wonderful time. They got to play in the gymnastics gymnasiums, have a pizza snack, play parachute games, and then sleep in the gym.
The leaders were tired out just watching them race through the gym and use the equipment. Some girls had already had gymnastics training whereas others were using the equipment for the very first time. Either way, they loved it.
The trampolines were probably the biggest hit of all. Who doesn’t love bouncing?
Why yes, that Spark is about 15 feet up in the air. She shimmied up there like a monkey. This seems like a good time to thank the amazing Club Aviva staff for having us for the night and for making sure we had a great time while also being really on top of our safety!
The other really popular area was the foam pit. Girls could jump or swing in and land in balls of foam.
Now that this unit has done two sleepovers already this year, it’s time for them to start getting excited about their 2-night camp in June. Some people believe Sparks can’t do the same fun things as older girls, but this unit sure proves them wrong. These girls are unstoppable!
