Ideas for Jail/ Prison activities

I am organising a sleepover in our town's empty prison and need to have some activities for the girls to do in the evening in groups and also some activities on their own (for when they don't want to sleep!)

Any ideas everyone as I don't have much yet!

Thank you

What section?

For Brownies, the Crime Prevention badge comes to mind.

For either Brownies or Guides, you could set up a crime scene with clues (possibly treasure hunt style), for the girls to solve a 'crime'.

Set up a fingerprinting station .

Take mugshots and print them onto 'Wanted' posters, or make own posters.

Set up a variety of jobs, each earning a small amount of play money, which they can then spend on prison luxuries - sweets, cake, etc.
