Youthie is for young people aged 11-18 with weekly evening meetings and regular weekend activities.
Facilities include: pool table, PS4, table tennis, tuck shop, milkshake bar, card games, board games, open bouldering in Climb61... Plus our youth workers are on site to offer support and guidance if needed. We aim to provide our young people with as many different experiences as possible in order to build self esteem, learn new skills and build positive relationships.
Kids Club Climbing
After school group with fun games based on developing climbing skills as well as snacks for Key Stage Two age children.
A chance to socialise outside of school and explore some new found independence in a safe and welcoming environment.
Kids club climbing provides Youth Workers with an opportunity to work with younger members of the community and introduce them and their families to the opportunities offered by SMYP from an earlier age.
Indoor climbing group open to young people of all abilities aged 11+
Climbers work their way through their SMYP Climbing Log Books to track their progress and achievements on our weekly climbing night, either at Climb61 or further afield trips to local indoor climbing walls and in the summer months, outdoor crags.
During school holidays we travel further afield and test our skills at outdoor crags.
Climbing is a unique sport with numerous benefits of which we have seen first hand in our other targeted youth work projects - Climbing Club was set up in order to make this experience more accessible to other young people in our area.
Bible study open to all ages. An opportunity to explore christianity in a relaxed and open environment.
An hour and a half of sharing a meal, playing some games, receiving input and discussing biblical themes.
We listen to what our young people say, what they are interested in and seek to provide opportunities to enjoy and develop. We enjoy a yearly residential holiday for young people and are looking to provide residential trips for our younger groups in the future. In the summer of 2019 we went to Cornwall for a week to a Christian festival called Creation Fest. We explored the Christianity in an informal way, skated, danced, body boarded, silent discoed, laser tagged, dodge balled and so much more. We cannot wait for our next adventure. Watch this space...
