Keep­ing ac­tive dur­ing Easter

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - What’s On -

Grosvenor Hall, Ken­ning­ton, is of­fer­ing young­sters the chance to join a high-adren­a­line and fun out­door ac­tiv­ity camp this Easter.

The for­mer po­lice col­lege is invit­ing chil­dren aged be­tween 11 and 17 to scrap the usual Easter egg hunt in favour of a week mak­ing new friends and mem­o­ries.

The or­gan­is­ers say the camp gives par­tic­i­pants the op­por­tu­nity to learn five new life skills – trust, self­con­fi­dence, in­de­pen­dence, so­cial mo­bil­ity and learn­ing through ac­tiv­i­ties such as fenc­ing or ab­seil­ing.

Ja­son An­drews, Kingswood Camps’ chief oper­at­ing of­fi­cer said: “We’ve seen so many young peo­ple com­pletely come out of their shell af­ter com­bat­ing their fears through team­work and sheer de­ter­mi­na­tion and that’s what it’s all about.

“An Easter spent at Kingswood Camps can give chil­dren the op­por­tu­nity to have an ad­ven­ture of a life­time.”

Kingswood Camps is one of the largest providers of res­i­den­tial out­door ad­ven­tures for young­sters, with five lo­ca­tions across the UK. For more in­for­ma­tion visit www. kingswood­camps.co.uk

Grosvenor Hall of­fers a va­ri­ety of out­door ac­tiv­i­ties, as our own re­porter Sam Wil­liams dis­cov­ered when she tried the 3G swing, above, and the zip­wire, on a visit to the for­mer po­lice col­lege
