Our last activity, the mountain walk. We climbed Hey Bluff - breathtaking views, walking in the mist.

We had to follow the map and be leaders.

Another brilliant day - canoeing, caving,  jungle gym and zip wire.  The weather has held out for us too.

 

 

Badger prints and looking out at the breathtaking landscape - what a way to end the day!

Woodlands Day 3

We had a very good evening yesterday - the children spent time orienteering.  

After a busy day of caving, canoeing and jungle gym, all was quiet by 10pm.

The children had an amazing first night; no sleepless people and most needed waking up this morning! 

 

 

Off to canoeing - our teams goals for today are:

Confidence 

Listening to each other 

Team work 

Encouraging people who are less confident 

Hand eye coordination 

 

Other groups are working on the high ropes and going caving! More pics to follow!
