Woodlands Day 2

Another fantastic day (especially with the sunny sky)  where everyone faced many fears, pushed themselves to achieve and showed a greater level of resilience. We started with a hearty breakfast of cereal, toast and scrambled egg.   Two of the groups were canoeing on the canal, it was made more challenging by the fact that it was VERY windy, quite often we would paddle round a corner only to be blown straight back where we had come from.  As well as all developing our skills in the canoe we got much better at communicating with our partner within the boat in order to make sure that we didn’t keep crashing into the bank.  Both groups showed great teamwork in getting the canoes to and from the canal – we were all extremely impressed and proud of them.

The third group spent the day tackling the climbing wall, high ropes course and zip wire.  It was definitely challenging and was great to see how they rose to this and supported and encouraged each other.

After a full day of activities everyone was glad to return to the centre and have a hot shower and change into warm dry clothes and tuck into dinner (sausage and mash).  Our evening activity was a photo orienteering course in the dark – great fun had by all; some obviously got far muddier than others! A few games of Uno and twister and then it was time for bed – everyone was quick to snuggle in their duvets and go to sleep.

For one group tomorrow we have the first caving experience (think of me!), whilst the other two head up the climbing wall. 

Let’s see what tomorrow brings.
