Cllr Jason Rust recently moved a motion at Full Council which obtained cross-party support to have the Council enter discussions to explore possible opportunities for young people in spring 2021 who were missing out on residential camps due to Covid-19 restrictions.
This resulted in a great programme being taken forward for P7s across the city at Bonaly Scout Centre.
Jason said, "I was keen to find a way by which we bring the facilities, the funding and the children together to provide future memories for the young people during these difficult times."
"I am aware of pupils aged around 11 who were going to miss out on school camp this past year, not only a great experience for them, but a chance to bond with other P7s who will be going to the same High School.
"My aim was to ensure that there was an offering there for young people to build their confidence with basic outdoor skills, understand their capabilities and the rewards of volunteering, contribute to worthwhile projects and better appreciate the environment and sustainable access, amongst many other things. I was delighted to see this in action during a recent visit to the Centre".
