The Easter holidays have been a fun and busy time for the Gibraltar Youth Service

Easter week kicked off with the Laguna Youth Club’s ‘Care in the Community’ Easter hamper project that gave particular focus on the Rock’s elderly and vulnerable.

At the Youth Centre, Rags to Riches participants were kept busy designing and creating t-shirts from reusable materials and clothing whilst the Gibraltar Youth Production Team explored different styles of photography and took part in a visual treasure hunt.

Two inter-club events were organised during the week, which enabled youth club members to forge new friendships and engage in different youth club settings, thereby increasing their confidence and self-esteem.

An inter-club basketball tournament took place at the Tercentenary Sports Hall, which catered for two separate age groups, 6-10 year olds and 11-18 year olds, with members of all four youth clubs taking part.

The other inter-club event took place over the border in Wakana Lake, Benalup. This event saw 45 young people take part in outdoor adventure activities such as hiking, archery, team-building activities and a 1.5 km Spartan themed mud trail.

These activities, in addition to the chance to experience a day out, offered the young people the opportunity to continue building and developing their personal and social skills in an alternative environment.
