Coastal Otago Zone held a Cossgrove and Cossgrove Gold course over the weekend for 26 youth.
Cossgrove (and Cossgrove Gold) courses are a great opportunity for young people to learn practical outdoor skills in a safe environment. For example where else can you pack six cookers and only one gas bottle and chalk it up to a learning experience #PlanDoReview. (Despite this error in calculations everyone still managed to get a cooked lunch!)
The courses are designed around small teams to help young people learn and teach skills over the course of the weekend.
Overall it was a great, full on weekend! Thanks to the Coastal Otago Zone team for hosting such a great learning opportunity for our young people.
