Explorers:
A fun and challenging evening keeping the Scouts engaged and immersed in learning new skills.

A great opportunity for the leaders to sit back (or join in!) and watch their Scouts learn how to balance a feather on their hand, finger, shoulder & face. This workshop is always a favourite even at this age.

Next up, we can either teach them the easy way of juggling with 3 objects by using juggling scarves which float as they drop (this slows the pattern down making it a much simpler way of learning), followed by teaching them how to juggle 3 juggling balls. Alternatively, we can then teach them either plate spinning and tricks or diabolo and tricks.

We finish the evening with some ‘free’ time where the Scouts can have a go at some of the other equipment we bring along. E.G. Bucket stilts, mini bikes, pedal racers, diabolos, flower sticks, hoola-hoops & even some unicycles. (Equipment used will be at the discretion of your instructor). Circus Skills is a positive experience, helping them to grow in confidence and self-esteem.

What our Explorers customers say about us:
Donald,
Explorer Scout Leader
Nick Putz arrived on time, was clean and well presented, we ensured there were help in unloading his van, as parking was made available too. Nick was supplied a cup of tea, and was introduced to 20 Explorer Scouts aged 15 to 17, he provided a full safety brief, and immediately engaged all Explorers into balancing, and progressed to juggling - even some Leaders joined in. Nick has a fantastic control and presentation skills, and I have highly recommended him to other Scout Groups. We helped re-load the van too !

Stuart arrived in good time to set up and be ready for a very busy day. He was enthusiastic all day and the kids loved what was on offer to try and learn. Would have no hesitation in booking Shooting Stars again as great experience. Thanks ever so much
