A camp for at-risk young people may be in jeopardy after a theft from the Launceston PCYC.

Statewide program Project Booyah is run from the PCYC’s Newstead site two days as week and is a 20-week program for at-risk 15-17-year-olds.

Constable Simpson said if the stolen bikes weren’t returned or replaced the camp would have to change.

“We will still have the camp but we might have to change up what we were going to do,” he said.

Constable Simpson said the bikes were frequently used for the program as part of its “mentor days.”

During mentor days, participants enjoy outdoor recreational challenges and activities, including the use of the bikes.

Constable Simpson said this year’s Project Booyah participants had been disappointed to hear about the theft.

“They are all quite shocked,” he said.

The program aims to connect participants with formal education and/or vocational opportunities.

Project Booyah district coordinator and PCYC club officer Dave Simpson said the program centred around outdoor recreation.

“About halfway through the program we hold a two-night, three-day camp and this year we were planning on taking the participants to Derby and Weldborough,” Constable Simpson said.

“It really is a rite-of-passage camp.”
