A Penryn-based adventure park is recruiting kids for a programme on how to 'Be Epic', 'Live Life' and 'Do Good.'

BF Adventure, in Penryn, Cornwall, is looking for kids to take part in its new National Citizenship Service (NCS) programme for 16 to 17 year olds.

The charity has teamed up with NCS to deliver two programmes over the summer for teens to choose from: a two week programme running from June 28 – July 9 and a three week programme running from July 12 – July 30.

Both programmes take place during the week, so as to allow participants to rest up over the weekend.

The first part of the programme, named ‘Be Epic’, will be full of activities at BF Adventure, including canoeing, coasteering, team building, climbing and abseiling, Via Ferrata, raft building, bush craft, catapult challenges, zip-lining and low ropes.

The second part, ‘Live Life’, allows the young people to gain invaluable life skills.

Whether it’s cooking, preparing for their UCAS application or developing their CV, the second stage in the programme is aimed at helping young people navigate their way through life post-school.

The third aspect is ‘Do Good’- a social action project that involves teams working together to come up with ideas and help to make a difference within their team, or later, local community.

BF Adventure describes the programme as: "A chance for these young people to leave a legacy in the community and focus on causes that they’re passionate about."

The BF Adventure charity supports some of Cornwall’s most vulnerable children and young people facing life’s toughest challenges.

Last year, NCS participants played a crucial role in site maintenance, developed over 1.5km of nature trails and worked with the #iwill Campaign in order to improve social action amongst young people.

The programme is open to all 16-17 year olds including those with additional needs and costs £50 per person - with bursaries available.
