2016 programme of activities announced with prices held and invitation to volunteers for ‘impossible’ Winter Challenge.North Yorkshire Youth, (NYY) based at Carlton Lodge Activity Centre near Thirsk, North Yorkshire has announced its programme for schools, scout groups, youth clubs, corporate packages and at weekends and school holidays for families.
Its 2016 programme includes Activity Days and Adventure Skills in the May half term and during the Summer school holidays when prices have been held at £150 per week. At weekends a two-day/one night option is available from £99.
The centre provides activities throughout the year for all types of organisations that boost self-confidence and team working skills by focusing on communication, planning and creative thinking. Schools, scout groups and youth centres find the activities to be invaluable. The Winter Challenge is a new initiative that helps people to achieve things that seem impossible, such as a Winter Survival programme that will be ideal for older teenage groups from colleges and universities or for corporate groups.
“2016 promises to be a big year for activity groups here at Carlton Lodge. The success of our school holiday programme last year has provided the momentum for further services this year and the addition of the Winter Challenge will create a further exciting option for the seriously active”. comments Mark Faulkner, centre manager
Anyone interested in taking part in the Winter Challenge to be held in February should make contact with Mark Faulkner, centre manager who is organising the challenge.
“We have a very successful core service that is delivering high quality activities for young people but as with any business or organisation, we need to keep developing new ideas and options and the new ‘Winter Challenge’ will be our own next big challenge,” added David Sharp chief executive
