Brilliant School Trips And Youth Football Tour
When I was a child I remember going on a fantastic school trip to Scout Dike and a brilliant football tour. Scout Dike was the best school trip I ever went on. We spent a whole week doing activities from hiking to pond dipping to wall climbing. It was fantastic and a great adventure.
Now as a mother I’ve just heard that my daughter Sylvia has the opportunity to go on her own school adventure for the week and I’m really excited for her. However I was quite shocked when I heard how much the trip would cost. It’s not the usual £10-15. The great news is, her school trip is not until October, and so we can make small affordable payments each month to ensure she has a place and can enjoy the experience with her classmates.
I really think holiday experiences through school, groups or youth clubs are fantastic learning opportunities. I was fortunate to go on plenty of camping type holidays with my parents while growing up but the one thing I always wanted to try out was skiing.
My family didn’t really go on skiing trips so when the opportunity came to go skiing at high school I jumped at the chance, earned the money through a part time job and went on the trip of a lifetime. It was an amazing experience and one I shall never forget.
Going on a school holiday or a youth sports tour can be an amazing experience. My father didn’t really ever go on school trips with me as a child but once when the school arranged a tour of the Barnsley Football stadium, dad came along and it was brilliant.
I’m really excited for Sylvia. I think she is going to love her school adventure when she is in year five and it’s going to be a great opportunity for developing new skills, having different experiences and taking part in team building activities. I think outdoors experiences such as wall climbing and hiking can have real educational value and these type of activities are great for building confidence and self esteem.
I also think going on trips to see football games and visit stadiums can be really exciting. My special needs brother recently went to visit the Manchester United Stadium Old Trafford. He also went to visit Barcelona in Spain which was an amazing opportunity.
It was an amazing experience for him as he is soccer mad and a few months ago he went on a trip to Barcelona to visit the Barcelona Stadium, Camp Nou.
This was the highlight of my brother’s year and he is still talking about it months later. Barcelona and Manchester United Stadiums both had Museums which were fantastic to visit and are in my opinion fun and interesting experiences for the football enthusiast.
