Day 3 at benmore

Sorry for the late post from Wednesday the internet was not working last night.

For breakfast we had cereal and fruit followed by sausage, beans and toast. It was very tasty!

After breakfast we went off to do our duties. Most rooms got 10/10 today for room inspections. The lowest score was 8/10.

After that it was time for our morning activities. These ranged from orienteering, forest adventures, ropes and biking.

For lunch we had vegetable soup and a filled roll. There were mixed feelings about the soup.

Our afternoon activities ranged from climbing, caving, canoeing and forest adventures.

We had flapjacks for cake oclock and then it was time for free time. People decided to shower, play frisbee, chat and play pool during this time.

For dinner we had battered chicken, rice and curry sauce. It was delicious! We then had artic roll and peaches.

After that it was time for a quiz around the house.

We are looking forward to our last full day tomorrow.

Day 2 at Benmore


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.

Day one at Benmore

Hi there, we have all arrived safely at Benmore. We have checked out our dorms, made our beds and unpacked our things. Each group has been out on a forest walk, with some people walking up waterfalls, crawling through tunnels and getting rather muddy! At five o’clock it is cake o’clock. Today we had cookies, they were excellent! For dinner we had fish and chips followed by ice cream and jelly. It was delicious! The breadcrumb on the fish was very crispy. We are just about to go and get ready to go on our night walk. We are excited and a little nervous.

We will update you more on our adventures tomorrow night!
