Going For Gold

Earn medals and become a Mini Coach

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?

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!
