"The Trustees of the Adventure Service Challenge (ASC) Scheme have decided to close the scheme from 19th May 2018. This has been done with huge sadness after the astonishing 58 years service to children and young people.
The decision was not taken lightly and discussions on how to keep the ASC going have been taking place over a number of years. The main reasons are for financial and personnel (lack of volunteers) issues.
The Charity will remain solvent and will be disposing of its assets up to 31st December 2108.
There will be an opportunity for groups, leaders and schools to acquire remaining stocks of resources at reduced prices until fully depleted. Please watch the website for details over the next few months.
Thank you all for your support over the years and you can be certain that another charity will be benefitting from any residual funds." (April 2018)
Adventure Service Challenge is a three-fold, integrated, interwoven scheme of activity for young people aged 8 to 14 years and beyond.
Discovery, exploration, leisure pursuits, attitudes to and skills for life
Concern for others, opportunities for helping those in need
A comprehensive and complete training programme
ASC is not a youth movement. It is an organised, structured, yet flexible and adaptable scheme of activities. It is multi-faith and open to all cultures. It is unique in that it offers its services to leaders and teachers who wish to meet the needs of a wide ability range of young people.Those taking part are not in competition with each other, their progress is assessed on the measure of their own personal achievement.
