Weymouth Outdoor Education Centre with support from Active Dorset, is providing accessible and affordable clubs for Dorset's young people.
Dorset's young people now have greater access to affordable clubs thanks to Active Dorset Satellite Club Funding, Weymouth Outdoor Education Centre has launched two new teen clubs, with the climbing club going from strength to strength.
Ben Grist, aged 13, shares, "I value the chance of climbing outside on the crags, which I haven't done before! I've learned so much and spoken to a couple of my friends about the club in the hope that they will sign up, and we can climb together."
Riley Churchill aged 17 adds, "I've enjoyed meeting new people and value the inclusivity of the club. The instructors are brilliant, and I feel exhilarated after climbing club." Riley's enthusiasm has even led him to express interest in the volunteer assistant instructor program set to launch in spring 2024.
These low-cost sessions, only £5 per session, are made possible by generous funding from Active Dorset, making them accessible to a wider range of local youth.
