P7 Dounans Camp 01.06.18

The P7s returned from an epic sun blessed adventure at Dounans Outdoor Education Centre today. Everyone excelled in numerous activities and in doing so scaled new heights, forged friendships for high school and took a midgy bite or two for the team!   

“The crate climb was very fun because we got to balance on top of crate after crate which was a wobbly adventure in the midgey infested woodland!”  Jemma

“I really enjoyed camp especially the leap of faith because it helped me get over my fear of heights. I can now soar like an Osprey!” Robin





“At the end of camp I loved the disco because we all had a chance to dance with one another for the last time as P7s. Whoop Whoop!” Phoebe





“I loved climbing up the ginormous prickly pine tree to get to the wooden balance beam. Once I got to the top I walked carefully for 15 meters along the thin wobbly horizontal beam.” Finlay

“I enjoyed canoeing because Angus, Robin and I capsized and fell into the Loch Ard. The water was stingingly cold and it woke me up! Tom





“I really enjoyed the exploration walk because it was a great way to meet new friends and find out more about them. I also liked the burn scramble because robin fell in and got really dirty!” Lucy 

“Farmers and thieves was extraordinarily fun because we got to work in teams with our new friends. We ran our socks off until we were panting like poor wee dogs with no water on a hot sunny day!” Ruby





“Raft building was out of this galaxy, a great way to kick off our week of outdoor activities! It was a contest of design, control and teamwork which challenged and invigorated me!” Angus

“It was fun meeting new people during the amazing activities and working hard together to complete them. ” Hannah

P6 Camp

P6 Pupils thoughts on their camp at Yellowcraig…


“First we went down to the camp which took around 30 minutes. We got into groups. I was with Charlie and Jamie. It was really difficult, so we got Daniel to hlp us get the tent up. We finally managed! Later that day, we went on a walk and found a smallish tree. We tried to get all 14 of us in the tree and we did it after a bit of a struggle.”


“Camp was one of the best things that we did in primary 6. The food was really nice. I also really liked trying to see how many people we could fit in a tree! I loved putting up the tents. Even though I finished first, I helped to put up other tents.”


“I loved it when  was playing with my friends and how we all worked together.”


“I really enjoyed P6 camp because I elped people down to Yerllowcraig and up by holding their bags.”



“I really enjoyed making the tents with who we were sleeping with. It took a while to make them but we got there in the end. Soon after, dinner was ready so we all dug in to the delicious pasta. I was quite full but I always have room for a little chocolate bar that I had snuck along with me! For the next activity we went to the woods and Martyn challenged us to climb a tree.”
