Want to have fun, work with others and learn new skills? Well, the Virtual School and fostering team are joining forces to offer you the chance of an action-packed outdoor education experience this summer!

That’s right, during the holidays you’ve got the chance to take part in a range of activities; you could climb a cliff, light a fire from scratch or try your hand at archery. These sessions will be led by an experienced outdoor education provider, Adelong Outdoor Adventure, with DCC staff supporting.

The programme will run over four weeks throughout August. The sessions on Mondays and Tuesdays of each week will be aimed at current school years 4,5 and 6, while activities on Wednesdays and Fridays will be for current years 7,8 9 and 10.

And the best part? You won’t have to pay a penny for the activities! That’s right, the costs of the sessions themselves will be covered by the Virtual School, although transport to and from the activities is not included in this – this will be the responsibility of your carer. Lunch will be provided each day, but it is always advisable to bring snacks and plenty of water to drink.

You can find the full list of activities here.
