|Workshop Name||Workshop Description|
|Parkour||Parkour is the practice of traversing obstacles in a man-made or natural environment through the use of running, vaulting, jumping, climbing, rolling, and other movements in order to travel from one point to another in the quickest and most efficient way possible without the use of equipment. Led by Ricky and his team, they help create a dynamic and inclusive environment where the kids can come learn a few new skills while having a blast.|
|Learn to Skate||Come join our workshop to learn the basics of Roller Skating/Blading. Learn how to stop/start, turn and glide through this new workshop with your highly trained Skate Assistants. Great for children looking to learn to skate for the first time or improve some abilities.|
|A fan favourite for the kids! Brenton and his experienced instructors lead a beginner class focusing on all the foundational exercises of gymnastics while helping more experienced children develop their skills.|
|Enjoy a fun obstacle course where kids are trying to get through as quickly as possible. We use our gym sports hall to create a large number of obstacles, jumps, hurdles etc. Lots of fun for all ages.|
|Floor is Lava||Don’t touch the ground! The Floor is Lava will allow participants to make and design courses/terrain and try to navigate them without falling onto the ground. Modified from the TV show, this will give kids oodles of fun while working with others to creative challenging courses.|
|Cooking Workshop||Come for a fun and yummy workshop where participants will get to make their own snacks/treats/meal and get to eat it afterwards! Yummy! The decorating and choice on ingredients will be up to each individual participant.|
|Art Workshop||With help from the team at Wonderland Art Adventures, participants will be able to let their imagination go wild with different activities to develop drawing, painting and craft skills.|
