Recent Adventures

We organise a range of activities outwith our programme of Youthie and After School Club sessions.

Bike rides, campfires, drama workshops are some of the recent projects we have undertaken while operating under the constraints of COVID-19 guidelines. We also arrange trips to theatre and arts events and, when possible, overnight excursions.

When possible, we arrange for workshops and courses led by specialist instructors. In recent years we’ve run courses in drama, music, video-making and make-up artistry.

Recently, several of our DDYP staff team and volunteers undertook bicycle proficiency training led by CyclingScotland. Combined with a grant to fund the purchase of six mountain bikes, this will allow us to run cycling trips around the area.

All these adventures help our young people to appreciate the world around them, develop confidence in their own abilities and have fun with their friends in a secure and supportive environment.
