H2O Summertime catch-up - Part 6 - Zoooom! Trip to Skye

 It all seems like a long time ago now, but back at the end of June, Zoooom! headed north-west to the land of the Cuillins - Skye! Over a long weekend, the party of eight spent time around the unique island snapping away. Name such as the Quiraing, Kilt Rock, The Old Man of Storr and the Coral Beach were all on the itinerary. AND the weather was good for most of the visit. Well done team Zoooom!

H2O Summertime Catch-up Part 5

Soul Survivor Scotland at Lendrick Muir saw a mini invasion from Oban around the beginning of August. The group (of lads) were accompanied by John and Catriona Petit along with Becky and Matt Anderson. There was a fine palette of activities for the group including team sports and some colourful activities around the site. Add to this Christian teaching and worship and you have a grand mix of a fun few days!

H2O Summertime Catch-up Part 4

eXp Summer camp took place at the beginning of August with a team of 7 leaders and junior leaders joining the 60 strong camp at Benmore Lodge by Dunoon.

H2O Award 2016

Annually, H2O present the H2O Award to a young person or group of young people who have in some way given back to or served their school or local community. Naomi Campbell was this year’s recipient. Over the past year she has been chair of Argyll and Bute Youth Forum and represented the county on the National forum for YouthBank Scotland. Her positive outlook, encouragement of others and her ‘can-do’ attitude made her the perfect candidate for the 2016 award.
