Young people take part in outdoor activities at ‘Ambition, Aspire, Achieve’ charity summer camp.
‘Ambition, Aspire, Achieve’ (AAA) located in the Terence Brown Arc in the Park in Bethall Avenue sent over 100 disadvantaged children and teenagers to two activity camps in August. Youngsters with special needs or disabilities who had no other chance of a holiday spent five days at East Mersea Youth Camp on Mersea Island, or three days at Lambourne End Centre, Essex in rolling trips.
“[The summer camps] make a real difference,” said AAA founder Kevin Jenkins. ‘They give kids experience and the opportunity to get a break from their day-to-day environment.”
Fun activities such as archery, high ropes, a climbing abseiling wall, build and drive go-karts, nature trails, campfires and sailing were enjoyed amongst the campers – both trips were sponsored by car dealership Glyn Hopkin Ltd.
