Event : Get Into Adventure Residential

Lancashire Boys & Girls Clubs headed up to Ormside Mill on 1st March for its first residential of the year, Get into Adventure, a residential aimed at those young people who have never had the opportunity to go away before on residential.

The Saturday morning saw us head up to the mill with young people from Tommy’s, Burnley B&G and Blackpool B&G for an action packed weekend. After some dinner and initial settling in it was time for the first activities, a series of team challenges for which points were awarded depending on time taken, teamwork and the groups success. Once all challenges were complete, and this took some time, the group were left with one final challenge…. River Crossing. The problem of the Chicken, Dog & Corn was quickly and successfully solved however when it came to individuals crossing the river there was variable success much to the amusement of everyone. The activities didn’t stop there as the evening was jam packed with archery, resi games and learning about the legend of Billy Jones.

After a great night’s sleep on the new beds at Ormside it was up and at em’ with the new geocaching course set up by Matt, a treasure hunt for the 21st century using GPS. After a short break for getting kitt’ed up and loading up for a return journey we set off for the dry ghyll scramble. It really was amazing how much we were able to do and the variety we could offer in such a short space of time.

A big thanks to Jasmine Gwillam of Blackpool B&G for volunteering and giving up her weekend to support this event.
