Norwich Thorpe Hamlet's Action Project

Norwich Thorpe Hamlet Venturers’ project got underway during the summer of 2010, as they used their funding to bring five young refugees and asylum seekers to Venturer Camp and to their district camp. The young people, from Afghanistan and the Democratic Republic of Congo enjoyed the camping experience, making new friends and entertainments. 

Four of them have continued to come to Venturer group nights since. One of the young people said "Woodcraft is so good, I enjoy it" and another said after VCamp, "I can't wait to be a DF and go back!” Their group leader Margaret, said “the grant has meant that we have been able to include everyone in all our activities particularly camping which is expensive to equip yourself for.”
