Brilliant first day. After a successful journey up thanks to Mr Buckland, we had a tour around the site to see some of the activities that we will do. Then we sorted our rooms and had our lunch. Following that we split into our two groups.
Group 1 headed off to archery and crate stacking - where they learnt how to use the ropes and harnesses and to belay. It was lovely to see the support that the children gave each other to build up and climb the tower in order to ring the bell. Meanwhile Group 2 went into the forest area to learn some bush craft which included building their own fires to cook marshmallows and hot chocolate, and shelter building - the leaders were very impressed and even commented that some of the shelters were the best they had ever soon. we then all had a swim.
After dinner we headed out for a field game - which was great fun - and finally a walk to tire everyone out! Now the children are all in bed and hopefully thinking about sleep.
