Our CCYD Young Carers were invited to Margam Park on Friday for some outdoor activities, as a part of a Young Carers programme. A treat for the learners who put in alot of extra support for their loved ones. This was an opportunity to blow off some steam and enjoy some activities that they may not otherwise have access to.
This was a very well organised event and super quality of teaching from the instructors / staff who provided, kayaking, raft building and archery in the beautiful surroundings, with a visit from some of the nature that the park provides, jumping carp and deer spotted!
The feedback from the learners was that they had a great day (definitely some budding archers in the group) and the only change they would make would be to have more activities more often. A few of them overcoming their fear of water and becoming more confident too!
Thank you to all the staff who supported the event, the knowledge from the team was so helpful and valuable. Hopefully this won’t be the last visit there.
