Hi everyone. We arrived at 11.30 and were greeted by Si and wonderful music. Cases unloaded really quickly and a quick trip round  with our leaders to find our way around and then we had our lunch. After that we went off to our activities of sensory adventure and bushcraft, fire building. 

 After discovering our rooms we made our own beds! We had dinner of chicken nuggets and chips, ready for the nighttime hike or sporting activity. Hot chocolate drunk and lights out.


Today has been a very busy but soggy day! Despite the weather we have had a great time. After a huge breakfast, we began our activities. These  included buggy building, Olympic sport activities, escape the invasion and mission x. Unfortunately our campfire was rained off and so we had a major dodgeball game interspersed with fantastic dancing. Dinner tonight was chicken korma or tomato pasta. Tomorrow we are all looking forward to archery and karting. Hopefully the weather will be kinder tomorrow and we will dry out!

Good evening everyone. Another great day. We have climbed Jacobs ladder, been go karting, escaped from an escape room and done archery. We have shown superb support for our friends to help them climb up the ladder and team work in the escape room. This evening we sang round the campfire and enjoyed hot chocolate with marshmallows! We are ready for our final full day of activities tomorrow. 

Today has been the most active day by far and the sun has shone for us! The children have enjoyed activities such as aeroball, body zorbing, low ropes and we have all joined in with a wacky water war. The children ended the day was a delicious BBQ and celebration evening including party dancing and singing. Of course they had to belt out a firm favourite ‘California Girls’. The evening rounded off with the children being awarded certificates and enjoying their final hot chocolate at Grittleton House.
