Sports Horizons Residential trip to Borwick Hall


For the first time since the start of the pandemic, our Sports Horizons service took the young people they support on a residential trip. The trip took 12 young people to Borwick Hall situated alongside the Lancaster Canal & home to a wide range of activities, it was the perfect venue to host the first residential trip in such a long time. 

Over the 2 days stay the young people took part in a range of activities such as Archery, Caving, and High-Ropes.   All the young people thoroughly enjoyed each activity and enjoyed all the team building activities too!   The evenings were spent around a campfire with marshmallows and further team building experiences including the odd sing along!

The resounding favourite activity was the caving experience, which was surprisingly difficult that brought great team spirit!

Sue Shelley, Sports Horizons Manager said ‘The trip was a huge success’ the venue was amazing & all the young people loved each activity, most of them trying things for the first time. It's a valuable experience for these young people and moving forward hopefully the experience will only enhance their skills set and build on their future ambitions.

The young people made us very proud as they were great team players and a pleasure to work with!

Quoted by a member of staff from doing residentials for over 20 years ‘The best residential ever’!
