Youth learn about Teamwork

Youth learn about Teamwork

In the last couple of weeks, VisionWest Training Centre worked with our partner, Adventure Specialties Trust, to take some of the young people here on a 3 day outdoor experience to Turangi and the central plateau. These camps and outings happen about four times a year and each camp gives different groups of people who work with VisionWest the opportunity to learn, grow, and challenge themselves in ways they haven’t before.

This camp was no different. The Young People got to do caving at Waitomo, climb Mt Ruapehu, try abseiling, rafting, and more. One student said they really enjoyed being in a family environment while on camp. Georgia Woodhouse, VisionWest Training Centre administrator, said “the best thing was seeing students’ attitudes toward participation changing over the course of the camp.” Plans are already afoot for the next camp. If you want to support students to go on these camps, please consider donating towards it.
