Phabkids Project at Avon Tyrrell

Phabkids Project at Avon Tyrrell

12 – 19th August 2016

The sun certainly shone for our ‘Phabulous’ week at Avon Tyrrell in The New Forest.  Our wonderful volunteers arrived on the 12th August and we spent that time getting our marquee ready for our Olympic theme, making beds, and preparing for the participants that were due to arrive on the next day.

Saturday was filled with great excitement as we booked the children and young people in and settled them into their log cabins.  The participants were divided into teams connected to the Olympics, and that theme continued throughout the week, as the participants enjoyed zip-wiring, abseiling, archery, circus skills, sports day, lake sessions, pond-dipping, bug hunts, disco, animal man, treasure hunt, cycling and much, much more.

Everyone got so much out of the week, and it was so sad to say goodbye on the Friday morning, but friendships had been made, goals had been achieved and it really was another Phab-filled Fun Week.
