On the weekend, a group of our Outdoor Employment Programme trainees experienced a residential trip away from home, in the mountains. On the trip, they were able to learn and practice their navigation and mountain skills.
Originally, the Outdoor Employment Programme trainees planned to head to North Wales. However, the weather prevented the trip taking place in North Wales, instead, with thanks to our friends at Maes Y Lade centre, they were able to change their plans and navigate across Brecon Beacons, where the weather was significantly better!
Overall, the trip demonstrated the importance of understanding and checking weather forecasts before heading out for their adventures. Despite their weather troubles, this was an amazing experience and was well enjoyed by the trainees and some of our delivery staff at Young Bristol.
