Jack Thomas and Ethan Gale, two United Reform Scouts from Rotherham, were sponsored by Sitwell Rotary Club to be part of a group of young people recently enjoying a weekend Youth Leadership programme in Buxton Derbyshire.
They went canoeing, abseiling, mountain biking, and caving under professional supervision. Jack said: “This was well out of my comfort zone, but brilliant. I learned about leadership and teamwork with people I had not met before.”
Ethan added: “This was more challenging than I expected, but good fun, and I have made new friends.” The two, at age 14, the youngest on the programme, are moving on to Explorer Scouts soon, and are looking forward to building on their experiences.
