Parents be prepared for some VERY muddy clothes in your child”s case! Great fun…. shrieks of laughter at who can get the muddiest! Your kids are having a ball! Big showers required after obstacle course!
All this fresh air has given everyone hearty appetites! Children tucked into full cooked breakfast, cereal, fruit and yogurts. Full tummies and ready for this morning’s activities- scavenger hunt and obstacle course.
What a lot we have packed into our first day! (Sorry I have had trouble loading pics onto website.) The children have had a brilliant time. The afternoon started with a tour of Manor Adventure and it didn’t take long for everybody to get their bearings. The staff here are wonderful and have been so helpful and organised.
The afternoon started with team games on the front grounds. The views here are stunning and we have been blessed with great weather.
After a large dinner, the class split into their teams for fencing or high ropes. Everybody enjoyed their evening activities and shared their experiences with the other group over a cup of hot chocolate.
The pods are cosy and comfortable. As a cooperative exercise, the children had to think of a team ‘pod’ name which are displayed with their own special drawings and designs. Next their task was to think of their own special greeting. It was a good laugh!
We have said goodnight to happy campers and lights out at 10pm. It’s an early start tomorrow morning…..breakfast menu looks good!
We’ve arrived! Children excited with pods and Lockerbie facilities. Everyone happy and enjoying their first activity. More to follow!
Leigh, our Outdoor Ranger, worked with each group on the River Dipping Activities. Pupils made amazing Nature Art using twigs as a frame. They built boats out of twigs and leaves and tested them in river races and explored the river wildlife. The children were surprised at the number of fish and river creatures they managed to find! Leigh took lots of photos…. so more to come later!
