Summer is here and kids have been taking to the water and getting their skates-on thanks to Nottinghamshire YMCA.

Summer is here and kids have been taking to the water and getting their skates-on thanks to Nottinghamshire YMCA.

Camp Williams, based at The Nottingham Emmanuel School and hosted by the Nottinghamshire YMCA, has added paddle sports and skateboarding sessions to an already jam-packed summer of outdoor and education activities.

The local charity has a rich history dating back over 145 years in our city and county. It is committed to promoting healthy living opportunities as well as youth development.

This summer sees YMCA camps get even bigger and better. To ensure children get the most rewarding experience possible, learn new skills and try something new the association has recruited a team of top outdoor experts and experienced tutors to lead everything from painting and music production to climbing, archery and much more.

Outdoor Education Manager at Nottinghamshire YMCA, and Great British Freestyle Kayaker, Gav Barker is thrilled to be leading paddle sports on the River Trent

“We’ve put a lot of time into making sure the area is accessible and safe for our campers to really get stuck into the paddle sports.”

“Kids love having a go at because taking to the river is not only fun and exciting, but you get the added bonus of enjoying the River Trent from a whole new perspective. It’s amazing!”

What’s more, Nottinghamshire YMCA aims to ensure its summer camps are as accessible as possible by providing bursaries to those who otherwise would not be able to attend.

At YMCA Camp Williams and YMCA Day Camps children and young people are provided with opportunities to form their own values, learning and identity through positive experiences.
