Fun and games in the Ar­ran sun­shine

Rutherglen Reformer - - News from the Pews -

Young­sters from Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang en­joyed a week away.

Young peo­ple and lead­ers from the Cam­bus­lang and Ruther­glen Rea­chout Trust vol­un­teers were among those at­tend­ing the KX1 sum­mer camp in Ar­ran.

There, the young­sters were able to share in their faith, and also try lots of new ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing ab­seil­ing and go­ing in a power boat.

They also got to try gorge walk­ing down a river, and at the end, faced a jump, where they were able to jump and take a leap of faith.

As well as the out­door ac­tiv­i­ties, the group looked at the story of the fish­er­men, Peter and An­drew.

The rea­chout trust was formed in 1994 to reach out to lo­cal chil­dren and young peo­ple, to tell them about Je­sus and the Chris­tian faith.

They work closely with lo­cal schools, and regularly or­gan­ise events for young­sters.
