YOUNG people in Camden are hoping to be kept on the straight and narrow this summer with a range of activities.
Music, rock climbing, jewellery design and even 'free running' are among the activities planned.
The Camden Council scheme aims to tackle youth disorder in a season already plagued with youth violence and killings.
Council leader Keith Moffitt said: "We have invested more in youth services this year than ever before. The programme will reach more than 1,000 young people from all over the borough and is part of our commitment to drive down youth-related disorder by providing more opportunities for young people."
