More Than Just Getting a Badge
With studies showing the health benefits that animal interactions have on people specifically the young, old and vulnerable. Animals for Scouting and Girlguiding sessions offer interaction in a unique way. Such way helps to improve mental health, communication skills and confidence levels.
In 2006 Maller, Townsend, Pryor, Brown and Ledger investigated the mental health benefits of interactions with different species. Their studies showed that interaction with animals has a lot of value for people living in cities and away from expanses of countryside. Time spent with animals can help to improve concentration levels and help young people to learn new skills and improve focus. All these skills work in conjunction with scouting groups and their goals, making these encounter days fun, exciting and beneficial.
Animals for Scouting and Girlguiding visits offer an interactive way to learn for all scouting members. From tarantulas and snakes to vinegaroons, rabbits, stick insects and chinchillas there’s something for everyone. It does not matter about past experience, confidence or knowledge. We can support a whole day or special event dedicated to individuals to help them build confidence, gain knowledge and experience, and to ensure that all members have a great time.
Animal Club’s Animal For Scouting Workshops
These events can be constructed to fit any time constraints. Animals for Scouting and Girlguiding workshops will suit as an activity for a single scouting group as well as for larger scouting events. Mixed age groups can join within one session if scouting groups are combined for longer session times.
Animals for Scouting and Girlguiding sessions also offer a superb opportunity to handle animals, which you may not usually come into contact with. Fears have been faced and conquered in group sessions where support provided by our experience ranger and the rest of the group. Doing something you never thought you would be able to do really builds confidence. These skills will without a doubt come useful in other aspects of scouting life or life in general.
