John Muir Award – discover, explore, conserve, and share.
Young people from our Wings School Cumbria are taking part in the John Muir Award which is an environmental award scheme focused on wild places, inclusive and accessible to ALL.
With the beautiful Lake District on the door step, they have been accessing Urswick Scout Camp and having some amazing fun with bush craft activities, learning to coppice and dry stone wall and well as learning about our local flora and fauna.
The award helps the young people at Wings to:
- appreciate and value nature, urban greenspace and wild landscapes
- encourage awareness, understanding and responsibility for wild places
- promotes personal development through outdoor experiences
- recognises and celebrates the achievements of each individual that meets the Award criteria
Well done to all!
