Challenger Troop Adventure Camps
Challenger Troop CIC is gearing-up youngsters for a residential week of challenging, military-style, outward-bound activities, survival techniques and personal development skills.
In response to a high number of requests from parents, we are pleased to announce that we will be running two high-impact 5-day, 4-night residential camps; 7th – 11th and 14th – 18th August.
Specifically designed for young people from the ages of 10-16 years, participants will enjoy an outdoor camp experience with military-style discipline, firm structure and behaviour boundaries. Throughout the programme there will be a focus on respect, responsibility and resilience. Participants will be asked to push themselves to reach goals they never thought possible, with the support and encouragement of our experienced ex-military instructors.
Over the course of the week participants will take part in bush craft, learning basic survival skills, fire-lighting, outdoor cooking and shelter building, adventure activities including mountain biking, along with military-style strategy games and drill exercises. The week will culminate in an Awards Ceremony where parents, friends and family are invited to acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of the participants. The Adventure Camps have been a huge success in the past, but don’t take our word for it – just look at some of the comments from past participants:
“AWESOME!” “HARD WORK BUT FUN!” “BRILLIANT!” “WISH IT WAS LONGER!”
Through the programme participants will develop key life skills including:
- Communicating with others including learning the importance of listening
- A greater sense of self-awareness and self-reliance and an improved sense of self-confidence and motivation
- How to work as part of a team to achieve a set task
- How to live and work together, including learning consideration and respect for others and a deeper understanding of how different behaviours and attitudes can affect those around us
- An awareness of safety and risk
- Appreciation of the natural world around them
Simon Dean, CEO and Founder, says “We are developing life-skills to fulfil their potential to have a brighter future. We aim to instil a ‘Spirit of Adventure’ and have a lasting impact on their behaviour, confidence and life-chances.”
Places are strictly limited. The price for this year’s Adventure Camps are £275 (plus VAT) per participant which includes all food, accommodation, loan of uniform, residential equipment, activities, and transfers.
