Stepping up to lead other Wild Ones
WILD Ones’ organisers have more helping hands than ever, but the ones pitching in aren’t who you would expect.
The adventure program recently started a bridge program, a step between Wild Ones and the Duke of Edinburgh initiatives.
Their maturity and assistance in co-ordinating their younger peers has helped the adult leaders enormously, according to Ron Petterson.
“They’ve been good. They’ve been cooking, done all the organising and they even set-up the schedule for the (camping) weekend together with Nick and Deb (bridge leaders),” Mr Petterson said.
“The older kids have taken on a leadership role. Creating future leaders and getting kids involved in the commun- ity and helping out has been a huge bonus.
“When the older kids get bigger they help the younger kids out.”
The Wild Ones have been busy in recent times, taking on Obstacles Gone Mad last month.
“They painted the Wild Ones and PCYC logos and put their painted hand prints on it. We will take that everywhere we go,” Mr Petterson said.
“The banner taught us how to work as a team and it was something that takes patience and care.
“Every kid that comes through Wild Ones will see that and be part of that banner.”
The Wild Ones are now taking enrolments for term three.
