From traversing the sights of Singleton in our own local version of the Amazing Race through to creating some culinary delights in Singleton’s Greatest Cook-Off, Singleton Youth Venue is mixing up a tasty program of events for NSW Youth Week.
Add in a dodgeball tournament, Singleton’s biggest singalong, a youth disco and Obstacool - complete with old-fashioned three-legged, egg-and-spoon and sack races - and the result is a recipe for plenty of fun and some healthy competition!
