Hyndburn teens learned team building on an action-packed trip to the Lake District.
Social landlord Hyndburn Homes took ten teenage girls on an outward-bound course in order to develop team building skills, build confidence and encourage positive behaviour.
Wayne Smith from the Neighbourhood Management team said: "Young people often get a bad press but we have found that with the right encouragement we can channel their energies into more positive things."
The trip to Tower Wood Outdoor Recreation Centre in Windermere is the second trip organised by Hyndburn Homes after the first trip last year with teenage boys proved highly successful.
The three-day excursion included team building skills like building and sailing a life raft as well as making the most of the great outdoors with activities such as hiking and pony trekking.
The ten girls aged between 13 and 15 were nominated to attend by a variety of agencies including their schools.
The trip was funded by Hyndburn Homes and YNOT Hyndburn.
"For some of the young people this will be the first time they enjoy any sort of short break and their first time away from home," said Wayne.
"Hyndburn Homes and its partners have provided an opportunity for local young people to develop all kinds of social skills that they may not necessarily have a chance to develop otherwise - and as a result rewarding and developing positive behaviour that will benefit the whole community."
