Young Kennel Club Offers Places On Outward Bound Course

The Young Kennel Club (YKC) is offering 10 sponsored places on its sought-after initiative which offers key life skills for senior members. The Outward Bound Development Course gives participants a unique opportunity to gain important skills which will help set them up for an exciting future.

Taking place at the Outward Bound centre on the edge of beautiful Ullswater in the Lake District from 26th - 28th July, senior YKC members will be provided with invaluable experience throughout the course.

The YKC hopes that the course will help develop the skills and experiences of its members to benefit the club and the dog world, both now and in the future. 

The course follows an effective yet simple formula; instructors teach new skills and then provide the chance to practice and refine them before inviting young people to take on more responsibility. Various skills are developed and may vary dependent on the course; previous themes have included teamwork, confidence, sportsmanship, communication skills, problem solving, leadership and project management.

Young Kennel Club Event Coordinator, Jane Fullbrook, says: "We're very happy to confirm the dates of the Outward Bound initiative, which is such a fantastic opportunity for our senior members to develop personal growth and leadership skills. This is not only a fun few days away but it equips them with key life skills for the future.

"YKC members can maximise the skills learned on the course to apply these when helping with the organisation of our future activities and events."

Places on the YKC Outward Bound course are open to members aged 18 years and over. Places are limited and applying does not guarantee a place; applications will be judged on merit.

Please bear in mind that anyone whose application is accepted will be making a definite commitment to attend the course and this can only be cancelled in exceptional circumstances.

Applications close on 30th March 2016.
