Free Summer Activities at Orange Box
Orange Box young people’s centre will be hosting free Summer Holiday activities over the school holiday for ages 13 – 19 years. Activities will run from Wednesday 25th July to Friday 31st August 2pm – 4pm, Monday – Friday (excluding August Bank Holiday)
This Summer Holiday activities will be taking on a health and well-being theme, chosen by our young people. Get active in our fitness workshops run Orange Box volunteers and young people. Come and enjoy our art and design sessions for a mood boost and release your inner interior designer by upcycling a piece of furniture!
You will also have the opportunity to create something stylish to wear with Worn Reborn, show your talents on our open mic stage, sing karaoke, climb the bouldering tunnel, play table tennis and pool, skate in the rooftop skate park. We will also be collaborating with other services. Humankind will be offering a Health and Safety course for young people with St Johns Ambulance as well as Drugs awareness workshops. Time Out will be offering Drama and Mindfulness workshops.
There will also be access to Youth Works drop-in which is a safe space for young people aged 13-25 to come along, 'chill out', listen to music, access the internet or have a brew.
The drop-in is always staffed by youth workers who can offer advice, information, support or guidance on the whole range of issues that affect young people.
The drop in is open weekdays from 3.30 pm to 5.45 pm.
No need to book, just turn up - you will need to register when you arrive (with parent or carer if under 16) if you haven't already, or you can fill out a registration form here and bring it with you when you come.
Activities will vary from week to week so keep an eye on the Orange Box Facebook page for regular updates.
