BUSC Youth Group's Adventures Continue!

IMG-0205.JPG

BUSC's Youth Group continues to roam through West Lothian much to the delight of everyone involved!

Over the past 10 weeks, our Youth Group - comprised of children, coaches and volunteers - has been visiting many places across West Lothian such as Beecraigs, Almondell, Linlithgow Palace/Loch, Niddry Castle, Stewartfield Park and Albyn Park.

Our young people have learned valuable new skills and traits to help serve them well as they grow up. These skills include enjoying the freedom to organise and play, meeting new people, photography and cooking, as our head chef William demonstrates in the picture below!

The young people have responded greatly to the youth group's activities. We've been told by them all that the youth group is fun because they have met new friends, had fun and developed a new-found confidence in themselves.

Last Friday, the young people served friends, family and school staff as a celebration of their achievement. BUSC are very proud of what our young people have accomplished and along with the school staff we can safely say we've seen fresh confidence from them all.

The kids are now looking to lead the activities themselves (while still being supervised of course!) and are the first to volunteer for any jobs that are required to be done.

Three cheers for our BUSC Youth Group!

Participation in the Alive & Kickin' Programme has brought many positive benefits to the people who have signed up. It has allowed them to make new friends, engage in physical activity, improve their health and reduce the risk of serious illness.

BUSC Youth Group - Friends and Fun!

Big Dave's Gang.jpg

BUSC is proud to have organised and assembled a youth group comprised of local children to visit various areas of West Lothian.

Over the past two months the kids have been to the likes of Linlithgow Loch/Palace, Niddry Castle, Beecraigs and Almondell. The kids are allowed freedom to play, organise their own entertainment and encouraged to have as much fun as they possibly can.

We believe that it allows the children to become more independent, and in the process the children have made new friends, developed new found confidence in themselves, and have learned new skills such as cooking and photography.

The staff that work with and supervise the youth group are James, Aidan, David, Joseph, Ruaridih and Matt. Whilst James and Aidan are employees of the club, David, Joseph, Ruairdih and Matt are volunteers and we wish to thank them for taking the time to help out our youth group.

If your child wishes to come along and join in on the fun, all you have to do is contact James at j.pegg@busc.org.uk!

Summer Holiday Camps Now Taking Bookings!

BUSC are happy to reveal that we are now accepting places on our Multi Sports Summer Camps at the Albyn!

These Multi Sport camps are designed to give children with a range of abilities the opportunity to learn new skills and techniques in a safe and engaging environment. The camps will be lead by qualified BUSC staff and volunteers.

The camps focus on a range of fun games and a wide range of different sports both team based and individual. We also encourage kids to embrace the free time aspect of the camp where kids can choose what activity/game to partake in the final hour of the session.

Dates and prices for the holiday camps are as follows:
