To support the continuation of an annual multi-sport, pan disability residential sports camp held at Largs National Sports Centre in July 2014.

Demand for the camps is growing and we cannot expand places or provide additional equipment. The camps are three days long, very positive and intensive for participants and a great chance for carer respite.

Trust Rugby has developed Tri Tours working with players aged 15-21, by taking groups on day and overnight trips to learn rugby and interact with peers to develop social skills allowing individuals to achieve their goals, build confidence and empower individuals.

This will also give parents and carers the opportunity to relax knowing that the person is in a safe environment.

DofE Paddlers on Tour

A team originally of 8 young people, but dropping to 7 got together to learn navigation, wild camp craft, (including outdoor cooking skills), videography and canoeing skills.  The events occurred in East Dunbartonshire, Glasgow, Ayrshire, Lochgoilhead and on Loch Goil and Loch Lomond.

The team canoed on open water, took part in self-rescue skills, (capsize drill) and camped on remote islands on the Loch.  In addition a water sports based residential opportunity for 10 young people lasting 5 days was provided in Lochgoilhead.  They then worked together to produce a video summary and have spoken at events to promote their activities.
