The day trips are exciting days out to a variety of venues. Most are to outdoor adventure sites where, apart from usually getting dirty and exhausted, they are designed to develop an individual’s skills such as initiative, leadership, creativity and time management. As well as being enjoyed, the competitive element and teamwork is of immediate benefit, for now and in the future. The groups also go to theme parks which are usually undertaken as a reward for completing an in-club course. Always popular and well deserved. Other outings are as simple as fruit picking or a trip to the seaside – a first for some!
These day trips help to ensure a packed summer of activities for the young to enjoy. We pay for all transport costs and significantly subsidise activity costs. Although we organise these trips throughout the summer holidays, it is the youth clubs and groups who promote and encourage attendance of the young and their staff who accompany them. They also help and encourage fundraising towards the subsidised cost of these trips which helps to improve the interaction between the young people as well as with the staff.
These outings to venues mostly across South East England cost us approximately £25 per person and we book over 2,000 places each year!
