Foundation 92 recently partnered up with the NCS Foundation to host a 5 day activity camp for young people aged 16 to 17 years old. 

The young people faced their fears by getting involved in activities they had never done before, forming new friendships, and stepping out of their comfort zones.

On Monday the 19th of February, a group of young people from across Salford and Greater Manchester arrived at Kibblestone International Scout Camp ready for a week of fun and activities. 

After settling in, they got stuck into activities straight away, having a go at target based activities, along with crate stacking and orienteering. 

One group battled against the Foundation 92 staff in an orienteering challenge, with the young people coming a close second.

Throughout the week Foundation 92 staff were able to see the young people’s confidence grow, trying new things, encouraged by everyone around them. 

Foundation 92 staff attending the camp, said: “It is great to see the young people forming new bonds and interacting with the staff. The young people seem to really enjoy the staff getting involved with the activities alongside them too.”

A young person attending the trip, said: “I have met a lot of new people, we haven’t stopped laughing, and we have all supported one another in every single activity.”

Upon finishing the camp, parents of the young people and teachers from their colleges expressed how much the young people had enjoyed their time at the camp, stating: “I’d just like to say a huge thankyou to all the staff at Foundation 92, Jake and Ollie had a wonderful time at the camp, thank you so much for everything you have done for them”, a teacher said: “Thank you so much for everything you did on the NCS programme for our students. Upon coming back to college, they couldn’t stop talking about the camp and how amazing the Foundation 92 team was. Thank you again! They truly loved it.” 

We look forward to being able to partner with the NCS Foundation again soon and hold another camp for young people across the community.
