Little Buddy Declan’s Outward Bound Journey.

Declan and his Big Buddy Craig have been buddies for close on six years, since Declan was 13.

Now 19,  Declan still makes time at least once a month to see Craig to do things they enjoy, in the Wellington region.  

Declan says Craig has helped him through a difficult period of his life but he is most grateful for the experiences and lessons he learnt throughout their adventures.

“I can confidently say I wouldn’t be the person I am today if my mum had not signed me up for a Big Buddy.
“I have never seen him [Big Buddy Craig] as a replacement or someone that felt they had to be there for me, he was always just a friend,”

Says Declan

Most recently Craig encouraged and supported Declan to go on an Outward Bound adventure. Declan has written a beautiful account of his Outward Bound experience. Click on the below link to read more and also about Craig’s thoughts on how Declan has grown.
