Grow Strong



Grow Strong is an activity based youth group (for school years 6-11) which is run by a team from local churches and meets monthly, on Saturdays, at Longtown Outdoor Learning Centre. 

In the last year Grow Strong has been gorge walking, canoeing, hill walking and orienteering, as well as enjoying a range of Centre-based activities. We’ve also talked about some of the big issues chosen by our young people – injustice, friendship and faith. 

Sessions this term have cost £15 for a half day (winter season sessions, Nov – March) and £26 for a full day (summer season sessions, April – October), a discount is available when 3 sessions are booked together.  We want Grow Strong to be available to any young person who wishes to come along, so bursaries are available.
