The Young Hackney Sports Unit along with We Skate Gals & Pals took a group of girls away for a skateboarding-themed residential at Camp Hillcrest in Gloucestershire.

The group spent 4 days immersed in skateboarding culture, practicing in the purpose-built skatepark on site as well as making their own boards and printing their own T-shirts.

The young people cooked for each other and learnt valuable life skills and teamwork along the way.

The group included a number of young people who experienced their first trip away from Hackney and their first trip away without parents.
