"Wow"... "It's mad"... "Awesome"...
"We have so much fun"..."
Welcome to the Renegades Youth Club!
Those comments are just some of the verdicts delivered by the young members of The Renegades Youth Club.
Renegades is an exciting and unusual youth group based in the Wisborough Green and surrounding villages of West Sussex. Born out of the Scout movement but with a freer and more creative approach, it is open to any child aged 10 – 18 in the Weald School catchment area.
But most of all it is fun! From archery and astronomy to carpentry and camping, via drama, night hikes and restoring a go kart... you name it and we do it! COVID safeguarded and determined to keep the children as active and engaged as possible, we offer both large mixed activity groups and specialist small group activities six days a week.
The Renegades are also in the process of planning a full year of professionally organised activities, with sailing, climbing and axe throwing top of the children’s very full ‘to do’ lists.
Our ambition is to set fire to the children’s creative minds and their imaginations. We want to take them to places and do activities with them that they will remember for the rest of their lives. The purpose of the club is to help develop the children through providing information and education in a fun way, through leisure opportunities and by actively involving the members in the running of the club, their community and wider society.
We meet every Monday night for a mixed activity session from 6.30-8pm at the Emmanuel Chapel in Spy Lane, Loxwood, plus we continue to offer activity specific sessions on the other nights of the week or at the weekend. Although we use the chapel’s space, we are not affiliated to it in any way.
For peace of mind, The Renegades is a registered charity, a member of the Sussex Clubs for Young People, all our volunteers are DBS checked and there is full insurance in place.
Membership is £10 a month per child to cover the cost of activities, and all children are more than welcome to talk to us about joining or to come along for a taster session.
Boredom is just not an option.
