Easter Residentials at Ratho

Easter Residentials at Ratho

rATHO rETREAT PICMuirhouse Community Centre delivered two JASS (Junior Award Scheme for Schools) group residentials to Pilton ←Retreat, Ratho over the Easter. There was an all girls group and the other was all boys. Each group spent three days and two nights at Ratho and had a great time. It is hoped that we will be able to repeat this format with another four groups as part of our summer programme.  

As usual the kids had great fun and kept the workers on their toes. Donna, Jennifer and Paula went with the girl’s group and Peter, Chris, Dale and Allan went with the boys group. As well as a range of activities on site, the girls spent a day at the Five Sisters Zoo in West Lothian and the boys completed a cycling trip along the Union Canal tow path from Ratho to Broxburn and back again.

In addition to the planned activities all the young people helped with the cooking and cleaning. If you want to find out more about attending the JASS groups please check on the centre’s website or contact Peter or Allan.

Special thanks are due to Ken at Pilton Retreat for all his help and Chris from MyAdventure for the cycling. The bike trip was part of the JASS award and all the boys attending have now completed the bronze element of the adventure section.
