A group of young Morley campers have returned to town after taking part in a successful community venture.
The party of 20 campers and 11 leaders pitched their tents for a week near the Delamere Forest in North Cheshire, camping at the hamlet of High Legh, as part of the Morley Camping Venture.
They took part in an action packed week which included water sports, games, swimming and quizzes, a night hike, a trip to Gullivers Kingdom theme park and a day trip to the beach.
Coordinator Andy Dalton, one of the volunteer leaders of Morley Camping Venture, said that the young people had thoroughly enjoyed the adventure holiday packed with meaningful activity.
He said: “Local churches provided much needed support and experienced youth workers were recruited from churches as cooks, drivers, games organisers, tent leaders and general assistants.
“This camp was actually the second camp organised over the summer holiday period. The organising committee had been absolutely deluged with applications meaning that this second camp had to be organised at short notice to cater for the demand.
“The first camp had catered for older teenagers and took place at the beginning of the summer holidays. A total of 40 young people from the area had a camping experience helping them to grow in confidence and have a holiday with their peers.
“I would like to thank local businesses, shops, organisations, charitable trusts and individual supporters who had provided equipment, given donations of money, food and transport to make the camp possible.
“This camp has been a great time for everyone. Youngsters have had the time of their lives with great weather and a lot of fun. They have learnt new skills, developed in confidence and come back to Morley with experiences which will make them better citizens in our town.”
