VICTA and RNC are hosting a youth break in April held at the RNC campus in Hereford. The trip will combine outdoor activities with cultural and social experiences. Our group will be based at the college, a Further Education College for students with visual impairments, and will travel to nearby activity centre, Oaker Wood Leisure for our outdoor adventure day.

This promises to be a fun and busy few days – a chance to try new things and gain in independence. Activities on offer at Oaker Wood include high ropes tree trekking and zip wire so we are sure to have an adrenaline fuelled day there!

We will also enjoy a social evening with bowling and pizza and plan to spend a day taking in some of Hereford’s historical and cultural points of interest. The break will be an ideal setting to meet other young people of a similar age group and share experiences.

The contribution required towards this break is £40.00 and will cover accommodation, all of the organised activities and main meals.
