Over 50 children per day dropped into Streatham Vale Adventure Playground to take part in a wide range of free activities. Outdoor games like Kingball, football and basketball kept kids active while the art table was popular among the creative types. They also played wii and playstation games. Always popular were the trips to the seaside, theme parks, and swimming.
New to Streatham Youth and Community Trust this year was a dedicated Sports and Drama Project. Young people could choose a two week intensive skills course in either subject. The Sport project included specialist coaches in table tennis and archery. Our in-house staff coached the young people in football, trampoline, swimming and bowling. They also had a chance to row at Surrey Quays.
The Drama Project was a brand new departure for SYCT. Experienced actor Daniella Downs led the young people in this Arts Council funded activity. They started off with exercises in character, props, and then wrote a play, created props, rehearsed and finished with a performance for friends and family.
