Youth Club – Trips & Events

Our trips offer an exciting opportunity to test your skills, spend time with your friends, discover new places and learn about new environments and cultures. We regularly organise day trips and week long residentials away from the city.  These are a great way to use the skills learnt here at Shadwell youth sessions and discover the real outdoors.  Trips will develop skills further and have an impact on your personal development too, especially building confidence and self-esteem.

To find out about our Training, Expeditions and Events please can members and parents come to the open evening this Wednesday 26th April at 7.30pm-8.30pm, there will be an opportunity to discuss and find out the details of the expeditions and also book for training, trips and events.

Please check your pathways ability level before booking on trips

Attending sessions regularly will help you on your pathways journey and you will gain essential skills leading to assessment ready for these trips below.

With additional travel expenses we realise that this trip is more expensive as it works out at £330 per head so we have reduced it to £280 and urge all members to help us raise additional funds to support the trip.  Experienced regular members can take part in the Kayakathon a 26.2 mile kayak marathon paddle on the Thames on the 7th May. Each member will aim to raise £150 and for other members we are planning something more suitable to their level.
