Day 1

We had a brilliant first day – the ferry crossing was blue sky and sunshine and we all enjoyed standing out on the deck watching the other boats.  Once at Kingswood we found our rooms and after quite a bit of struggling but in the end lots of teamwork everyone managed to make their beds – putting sheets onto the mattresses and duvets in covers was definitely our first challenge!!

Splitting into two groups we then took part in our first two activities – Buggy Build and Aeroball.  Those doing Buggy build created huge Flintstone like vehicles out of pioneering poles, planks and barrels – we are now all good at tying clove hitches and double figure of eight knots!  Each group took turns to transport two team members at a time around the field and finally we raced our buggies.  The Aeroball is a game of basket ball which takes place on trampolines – great fun but very hard work!

Next we had dinner after which we had an evening campfire – learnt some new songs some and toasted marshmallows.  Finally we crashed in bed.

Day 2

Day 2 started FAIRLY early!  Our first journey of the morning was to the dinner hall where everyone ate a huge cooked breakfast, along with toast and cereal!!! This was followed by room inspections and then starting our activities for the day.

Group 1 took part in bush craft skills and Buggy Build this morning; in bush craft they learnt to build shelters, light fires with flint and steels and make soap from conkers!!  Group 2 completed the night-line – an obstacle course they navigate as a team with everyone blindfolded, it required great teamwork!  After this they enjoyed a game of Aeroball and then tried out abseiling – all this before lunch!

Lunch saw everyone polish off another cooked meal – they are certainly eating well!  After a bit of free time in the sun the afternoon activities started.  Group 1 are tackling the night-line this afternoon along with the 3G swing and lots of team games whilst Group 2 are learning bush craft and braving the 3G swing.

I have no doubt with all the sea air and wonderful weather, they will be ready for yet another cooked meal for tea this evening followed by our very own scrapheap challenge.  After which hopefully they should sleep much better and longer this evening!!
