Teenagers from Huddersfield have been building basher shelters and sampling military rations as part of an Army taster weekend in Catterick, North Yorkshire.
The 22 young people aged between 14 and 19 years have been developing life skills under a youth programme being run by the Huddersfield Pakistani Community Alliance (HCPA) and the British Army in parts of Huddersfield.
The specially designed weekend allowed them to try their hand at military fieldcraft and problem-solving skills as well trying out paintballing and a laser range.
The assault course provided the young people with the chance to challenge themselves, scaling walls and plunging into the water obstacles.
The group was taught observation skills and the basics of camouflage and concealment. They also set up a harbour area and learnt how to build a basher - a basic overnight shelter.
It is planned to roll out the project nationally.
