Vista peer mentors splashed down at the Leicester Outdoor pursuits centre
On Tuesday 23rd of July, we held our peer mentor event at Leicester Outdoor pursuits centre. Peer mentors and other young people took part in abseiling & bell boating in a day full of fun and frolics.
We gained some amazing outcomes of confidence with the Peer mentors encouraging other young people to have a go. The young people worked together and developed their teamwork skills, and there were many who conquered fears, whether it was when they first step over the edge of the abseiling wall or jumping into deep lake water.
We finished off with bell boating which involved real team work in rowing and lots of water splashing - with the whole group ganging up on the members of the Vista staff at the end. Anything to get their own back.
