Sailing On 2018!
Sailing On 2018 is looking forward to their follow up camp this weekend in July at Forest Edge!
The smaller and very adventurous crew of 4 young people, 1 youth work student, 2 volunteers, 1 young peer mentors from 2016 journey and 2 Bush Adventure/Family Therapists.
Unfortunately 4 young people needed to pull out of the actual sailing camp yet dis enjoy and were challenged by the previous day trips. YaFT is looking at how to best cater for these young people for whom, for various reasons and understandable factors found the longer trip not possible.
The 8 day sailing journey challenged young people to gain new skills such as sailing, camping, cooking and also with the challenges of living in community. The follow up camp enables the group to reflect on what they have learned, how they have been able to integrate this learning into their everyday life and to celebrate this during a graduation with family, friends and workers.
This time with young people continues to inspire us, excite us and builds real hope for their future.
Thank you to all those who supported this amazing journey!
