Didcot TRAIN Youth Project

Train goes to France

Towards the end of September TRAIN took 6 young people to France for a week long residential; the purpose of the trip was to offer vulnerable young people an opportunity to challenge themselves mentally, physically and socially in a completely new environment. During their stay on the olive farm surrounded by mountains and acres of farmland the young people woke up at 7am every day to do stone picking followed by different activities in the afternoon such as canyoning, zip wire, swimming, scuba diving, hiking and more! They also tried new foods such as snails, wild bore, French cheeses and venison which was shot within the grounds! It was an amazing experience and we are very proud with what the young people were able to achieve in just a week.
