Our Space

by Julius on August 16th, 2009

A summer camp for 14 and 15 year-olds run by the Equality and Human Rights Commission, this year’s Our Space took place on the shores of Lake Windermere and I went along to take photos.

Around 80 young people converged from the corners of Britain for five days of wire-walking, orienteering, canoeing and training to build leadership and team skills.

The food was reminiscent of school dinners and there was some traditional Lakeland rain but it was an inspiring few days, meeting great people and getting the opportunity to see them working brilliantly together.

Martin Wainwright of The Guardian has written and audioblogged about the camp.
