First Time Away, South East, 25-26 June 2016

We know that staying away from home can be a big step for children. Our first time away weekends are just one night away with NDCS at an activity centre. The events are perfect for building confidence and independence in primary aged deaf children (aged 8 – 12). We’ve got an exciting weekend of activities to keep your child busy including:

  • Team building challenges
  • Bushcraft
  • Environmental activities
  • Climbing

Plus loads more to keep your child entertained and enjoying themselves on their first night away from home! At a first time away weekend, children can:

  • Learn about looking after themselves and their belongings during their night away from home
  • Try some fun activities
  • Meet other deaf children and make some new friends!
