Young carers enjoyed rafting at the Caldecotte Xperience as part of a two-night yurt adventure.

Twenty youngsters from the seniors group of Buckingham and Winslow Young Carers (YC2), plus three adults, stayed in a fabulous oak-framed yurt built on traditional Mongolian lines and run by Action4Youth.

The young carers, all aged between 12 and 17, tried out a range of outdoor activities including kayaking, canoeing, sailing, rafting, archery, potholing, abseiling and high ropes.

The trip was funded out of a £3,000 donation from the Phoenixbury Festival Committee.
