A youth group run by Charlton Athletic Community Trust has taken a group of kids to discovers the wonders of Wales.

Young Greenwich is aimed at kids between 10 and 19-years-old and holds over 400 sessions a week.

The group recently took 34 members with help of The Outbound Trust to North Wales for their residential trip to get a real feel of an adventurous summer.

Attendees were a mix of members from Valley Central, Hawksmoor, Woolwich Common and Avery Hill youth hubs, all based in the Greenwich borough.

They were split into three mixed groups and took a stroll to Llyn ldwal, a lake situated not far from their Ogwen Cottage which was surrounded by hills and mountains.

Taking in the fresh atmosphere and scenic landscapes, the young people had the opportunity to get to know their environment a bit better before the real action began.

After the walk, each group went into separate activities, including swimming and splashing around in a different lake, Llyn Ogwen, situated opposite the cottage.

Some groups went on an expedition, the second group went kayaking and the third group went rock climbing at Llyndy Isaf and gorge walking at Afon Goch.

Another group took on one of the most popular gorges in Wales, Afon Ddu, which was bigger, more challenging and a lot more fun.

The group also had a chance to learn more about Wales and got to know a bit about Charles Darwin’s history in Wales and saw iconic places like Mount Snowdon and locations where films such as Tomb Raider 2 & James Bond: Die Another Day where filmed.

Young Greenwich would like to thank all young people involved for taking on the challenge this summer.

It was a great experience to make new memories with us in a different environment. They would also like to thank the staff involved on this trip and The Outward Bound Trust for the support along the way
