New experiences on Falcon Camps
'Living on a boat for a week is a fantastic experience for young people and leaders alike. A little boy from my church came this year, and it was an absolute joy to see him literally jumping up and down with excitement! We do all sorts of activities both on site and beyond including sailing, high ropes, climbing, a night walk, visiting the zoo, team-building activities and games on the field nearby.
'I love seeing the change in them from the first evening when they're often quite nervous and getting to grips with it all, to the end when they're confident and proud to have achieved so much together andexcitedly telling others about everything they've done. Many of them want to bring their friends along next year, which is always a good sign!'
Liz Skudder, activities co-ordinator for Falcon Afloat!
