Elevating Success

During the first two weeks of August, sixty youths aged 8 to 14 from London boroughs including Croydon and Lewisham visited the Centre as part of the Elevating Success Summer Scheme. The children ‘thoroughly enjoyed themselves’ learning and trying out survival skills and pond dipping.

The children took part in activities that had an emphasis on experiential learning, enjoyment, active participation and teamwork. As part of the survival activities children painted their faces, invented tribal calls and built shelters. During the pond dipping, “Children were able to discover creatures by themselves and learnt about them by identifying them on the key.” (Elevating Success group leader)


The visit was part of the Elevating Success two week summer scheme that aims to develop the skills and/or enhance the quality of life of individuals by offering them the chance to try activities and projects. Financial support for their visit was provided by the FSC Kids Fund.
