Day 2 at Benmore

Hi,

We started our day by getting up and ready for breakfast. Some of us were up rather early. For breakfast we had cereal, fruit, yoghurt, toast, bacon and scrambled egg. After breakfast we had our chores to do. These were things like sweeping the floor, making our beds, emptying bins and tidying up. We had a room inspection not long after.

In the morning each group went on an activity. These ranged from shore scrambling, canoeing, abseiling, biking, orienteering, gorge walking and the high ropes.

We came back to the centre for lunch, which was tomato soup and a filled roll followed by a biscuit.

After lunch it was time for our next activity. These ranged from gorge walking, canoeing, biking, orienteering and the high ropes.

After that we had cake o’clock which was a jam doughnut. It was messy but delicious.

At free time people climbed trees, played football, had races, showered, chatted, and played a variety of games.

For tea we had spaghetti bolognaise with garlic bread. It was amazing! For pudding we had jam and coconut sponge with custard. It was surprisingly quite nice.

People are now visiting the tuck shop while we write this. We are about to go on a scavenger hunt around the grounds of Benmore.

We will update you more again tomorrow.
