After a wee stop over in Jedburgh all arrived safely, they went straight to quad biking. Scrap heap challenge was the evening activity. All made their own beds, some with a little encouragement. The boys awoke at 5.30am to be promptly told to go back to bed! At 6.30am everyone was up and getting dressed. The carpet can no longer be seen, clothes are strewn!
Cooked breakfasts all round this morning including spaghetti hoops on toast. Pupils have already visited the camp shop and staff are stocking up on chocolate for energy. It is beautiful dry weather at Kingswood this morning. More quad biking, archery and climbing, all before lunch, they WILL sleep tonight!
After the kingswood information night everyone is as excited as ever as we now know who we are sharing a dorm with. We are all excited about our activities (i’m looking forward to the quad biking).by Gabriel
