Us Girls Conwy Adventure Weekend at Plas Menai

During Women in Sport Week in October, Conwy’s Us Girls participants pushed their limits, overcame their fears and made plenty of new friends.

In partnership with Denbighshire’s Us Girls project, we arranged to take 36 girls, between the ages of 11-18, to Plas Menai for a Girls Adventure Weekend

The weekend was arranged by the Outdoor Partnership Forum with the aim of getting women & girls involved in adventurous activities.

Throughout the course of the weekend the girls had the opportunity to try paddle boarding, cycling, canoeing, low ropes and the leap of faith.

This would have been the first time that many of the girls would have had the opportunity to try these activities and they all excelled. From some having a fear of heights, to others having a fear of water, each & every one faced their fears and conquered them.

We were very fortunate to also have Boots Llandudno visit us on the Saturday evening for a pamper party. The girls thoroughly enjoyed learning about skincare and make up tips.

Despite a very tired group of girls (& staff), we thoroughly enjoyed the weekend and would like to say a big thank you to all the staff at Plas Menai for making it so memorable. The feedback from the group was absolutely brilliant & we can't wait for the next visit!
