And the winners are...

 

Edinburgh based Children's Holiday Venture (CHV) were the lucky winners of a digital camera in Youth Scotland's annual affiliation prize draw. Katy Pendry, president of CHV, describes a recent residential in which the camera was a great asset...

 

'We took our new camera on camp with a group of young people. The camp was just outside Aberfeldy in the middle of January this year and it was very snowy, which made our location very beautiful and lots of fun.

 

On the Friday night we arrived, the young people enjoyed playing in the snow and we made a small camp fire, toasted marshmallows and sang camp fire songs.

 

On Saturday morning we woke up to more snow and the young people were desperate to get outside to sledge. We used our new camera to take lots of sledging photos and the young people loved seeing themselves mid-action while sledging down the hill.

 

After a big lunch, we got into the CHV minibus and travelled into Aberfeldy to get in our gear for white water rafting. A few of us opted out of river rafting but we managed to get some great photos of the group rafting.

 

We had a great weekend in Aberfeldy with all the snow and especially river rafting. We're really grateful for receiving this camera - the whole group are thrilled that we now have so many fantastic photographs to remember our camp by.'
