Scout

The Scout is a fun, dense play event for school age children. With its world explorer look, it attracts children back for more play over and over. The challenging climbs up to the slide train children’s balance, cross-coordination and proprioception. The Jacob’s Ladder has a special feature in the twist of the 3rd step: this makes a change of foot position necessary to go further. The mastery of this proprioceptive action is only possible for children of a certain age. So there are ways up and around the Scout for bigger and lesser dare devils. The motor skills trained are important for children’s physical confidence and security in moving, for instance in the street. The sense of balance and space are trained whizzing down the slide. The sense of balance is fundamental for all other physical skills.
