Engaging young people at Harrisons.

I took 9 challenging teenage boys to Harrisons whilst working for an outdoor education centre yesterday. All of them are in school but in need of some extra input as they are struggling to fit in with the regular education system. They spend one day a week for 8 weeks with the centre and they kept Bernie and I on our toes all day! Scrambling and bouldering seemed to engage more of them than climbing on a rope but the two smallest boys put in an excellent effort on the awkward sandstone climbing. It would be great to take a smaller group with a 1:2 or 1:3 staff:client ratio and give them the oportunity to explore and play in a more free-flowing way…
