We are getting adventurous!

2019-07 - AYFC AIt has begun - our work with young people outdoors. We’ve always worked in the outdoors with young people but now we have a (AALA) license and insurance, we can also lead young people in adventurous outdoor activities listed in The Activity Centres (Young Persons' Safety) Act 1995 and the Adventure Activities Licensing Regulations 2004 with the law’s blessing.

At the recent AYFC garden party we challenged our guests to climb a rope. The rope was 15 metres long and suspended from a tree branch. There was a crowd and a queue throughout the afternoon. It was hard. A lot of young people have never climbed a rope and though they were protected by a safety rope and belay they were excited by the challenge. It was an adventure.

Adventures seem to be recreational. They enable us to develop new ideas, perspectives and vision. Some of the most profound and seminal conversations I have had have been during or immediately following adventures. Sharing adventure seems to be a catalyst for forming relationships. For these and other reasons we are going to be inviting young people to join us in adventurous outdoor activities.
