calumFrom Callum, Youth Adventure Programme participant

“Dear Tessa,

I would like to say a big thank you and how grateful I am for you allowing me to take part in the fantastic camps and events you arranged. They have had a huge impact on my confidence, self-esteem and ability to socialise with other people of my own age.

I really enjoyed the camps. I was nervous at first but yourself and the other team members made every minute fun and exciting. I was so sad when the camps came to an end but it was amazing and I will always remember the great times we had.

Kind Regards,


From Callum's parents

"Dear Tessa,

We would like to thank the Youth Adventure Trust for helping transform Callum over the last 2 years.  As you know, when Callum joined he was very shy and insecure.  The changes in the last 2 years have been quite remarkable.  He is now outgoing, taking the lead in situations and conversing with a varied set of friends, spending many days out with his friends rather than hiding in his room!

As a result his school life has improved immensely, also improving his school results.  As well as seeing a major change in his personality he greatly enjoyed his time, always returning home with tales of the adventures he had that day or weekend.

We know you took an interest in helping Callum and would like to personally thank you and your staff for the effort you put in, particularly as you were often mentioned in Callum’s dispatches!

I hope the Trust is still going strong and other children are benefitting from your hard work, in fact I believe Callum has an interest to volunteer himself when he reaches 18.  Long may it continue.

Warmest Regards

Melanie & Steve"
