Going For Gold

The Going for Gold programme is running everyday over camp and gives the kids an opportunity to earn their way through gaining a Bronze, Silver and Gold medal.

How do they earn their medals?

The kids will be given an achievement card. This is a tick box card which the kids can bring to camp every day. The kids can earn a tick in the box by displaying good behaviour and achievement. At the end of each day the coaches will hopefully be able to give each child a tick in the box, which moves them one step closer to earning their next medal.

Once they have completed their Bronze medal, they will move on to their Silver and Finally their Gold!

When are medals given out?

A medal ceremony will be held at the end of each week. Each child that has completed a level will get the chance to come up to the front of the group and receive their medal, whilst being given a huge well done and congratulatory applause!

What happens after achieving a Gold medal?

Our Gold medalists go on to become Mini Coaches. They will get the opportunity to purchase a mini coach top, however if you decide not to, you can still show you’re a mini coach by turning over your achievement card and filling out your mini coach licence!

Mini Coach Licence

What do Mini Coaches do?

Mini Coaches are our most loyal and best behaved kids at camp. They set the example for the other kids and are given the responsibility to help the coaches set up some games. We nominate our Mini Coaches to be team captains during games and can trust that they will help the other kids out during the games, if they need a helping hand.
