Our Juniors Club is for young people aged 13-25 years old and runs every Thursday evening during term-time. We offer a wide choice of activities each week from cooking, music, drama and art to sports, dance and creative writing. There's something for everyone! We always encourage our members to try their hand at something new and to suggest activity ideas to us. But we don't always stay in-house though and also arrange trips out to the cinema, theatre, and local community groups.
We have regular discussion groups during club nights to help members talk about issues that affect them. Our discussions typically revolve around life experiences and practical skills such as job-seeking, coping with bullying, using transport, money management, health and relationships.
The Squad's annual holiday is THE key event in our social calendar. We take our members away for a weekend residential break and to have some fun with their friends! In the past we have stayed at outdoor activity centres, visited Disneyland Paris, Oxford YHA and Alton Towers. Our members have enjoyed trying lots of new activities such as go-karting, zip wiring, climbing, raft-building, archery and obstacle courses.
We are proud of our members and always encourage them to share their skills and achievements. We even recognize individual achievement at key events such as our annual awards ceremony, AGM and performance evenings. Our members look forward to these events which are a great confidence boost.
