What is Amicus!!
Amicus is Latin for 'friend' or 'comrade'.
SYG Amicus is a group for young people in school years 10 -13 (Age 14/15-18yrs).
We meet on Monday evenings (during term time) in the Marven Centre at Sawston Village College, at 7.30pm – 9.00pm.
We are also able to do DofE from 9.00 – 9.30pm.
What do we do!
A typical term from September to April consists of a structured weekly programme, activities may include: crafts, projects, guest speakers, team building, life skills, bowling, disco and carol service to name a few.
The programme is never the same, with newactivities each term.
May – July is the time for us to enjoy the summer weather and embark on a range of outdoor activities, these may include: punting, wide games, laser tag, BBQ and canoeing/kayaking.
We have the opportunity to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme, starting at Bronze level, through Silver, right the way to Gold.
Every year, we are able to go on the groups annual five day residential takes place during the first weekend of the summer school holidays. We visit a different site each year with the aim of trying new activities, learning new skills and making new friends – it’s not to be missed!
The motto of SYG is to provide opportunities for young people and we strive to do this through a varied weekly programme along with many additional activities.
