Capstone North celebrated World Friendship Day at Crocky Trail!

16th August, 2019

To celebrate World Friendship Day on the 30th July 2019 our Heywood team planned a friendship day out to Crocky Trail in Waverton, Chester. On the day eight children attended who were aged from eight to eleven. The aim of the day was to try and promote friendships between the children in aid of World Friendship Day. here at our Heywood office, we already have an established youth group for over twelves, however, the younger children within Capstone North are yet to form the same friendship bonds. Crocky Trail is an adventure/ physical activity set in the countryside comprising of giants slides and a walk/trail in which there are obstacles such as rope bridges and swings to complete along the way. Three members of the team attended and transported the children in their cars to the Crocky Trail. This gave the children time to get to know each other throughout the car journey there and back Everyone met at the office at 9 am on the 31st of July at the Heywood office. The children were excited about the day out and all came prepared with their lunch and their wellies as Crocky Trail was meant to involve lots of muddy activities! When the children arrived at the Crocky Trail, the staff paired them up so that they could go and explore alone but still within the careful watch. The children were allowed to explore but with certain boundaries which they all adhered to. All the children enjoyed going on the slides and some even enjoyed the haunted house, although others found it a little frightening but it was nice to see the children encouraging each other along and willing to have a go and try new things. They all got very muddy which added to the fun. The group socialised well together during the outing and there were no issues. They were kind to each other, polite, bonded well as a group and friendships were formed between themselves. Overall the day went really well and was enjoyed by all. The children learnt new skills throughout such as balancing across moving bridges and walking through mazes. We are excited to plan further activities with the children to make sure the bonds of friendship formed flourish even further.
