The children have been brilliant on this first day and they have certainly kept busy. They got settled in their tents and then had lunch. After a bit of free time we completed the Challenge Trail which apart from anything else provided some welcome shade. The children had to work as a team, communicate effectively and most importantly support each other. Later they completed the Orienteering course which allowed children to explore the wider site.
Tea was a delicious BBQ, all ready for us after the afternoon’s fun. In the evening Melinda ran the fire lighting session for us and children toasted marshmallows.
What a brilliant first day! Let’s hope they sleep like logs.
