Our wall has gone mad, thanks for all the messages left


12.45 - They've set off - expected about 5 o'clock


Happy Birthday to you

Happy Birthday to you ...

The children are all danced out now and sad to be packing, which seems to be taking a long time with the distractions of hot chocolate and the football.

Signing off for the night - they're back tomorrow!

Morning everyone - Another bright and early start! Although not so bright-eyed for the children. Birthday celebrations have already started!!!!! #Happy Birthday to you#. There will be extreme muddiness later on the sensory trail, more news to follow.

Comments from our Wall have been shared with the children - lots of smiles, and a few rolling of eyes!

Wow what a great session - the girls were amazing!! Sliding face first into muddy water and enjoying the feel of mud filled waterfalls. Get your washing machines ready - it's the boy's turn next.





Morning every - all breakfasted and off to activities

Miss Southam's reporting children fighting with sharp, pointy objects! DON'T PANIC - It's fencing time!!!

Also on the agenda is raft building and circus skills - lock away any breakables as they have all been practising their juggling, Diablo, flower sticks and plate spinning. some of the teachers are now thinking about running away with the circus! The raft building didn't look that successful.









Most enjoyed abseiling down a 15m high wall tonight. Children are now full of information about minibeasts after a bug hunt - sounds like Springwatch. Biscuit, hot chocolate and then bed, zzzzzzzzzzzzz (hopefully) 

Miss Southam reports that they have just finished their dinner - and it was delicious, again. Apparently, there was a huge choice again. But there's no time to relax as they are off abseiling now. We think they are trying the 'If we work them hard, they might sleep' tactic. We'll let you know if it works tomorrow!

Everyone feeling a little tired now - description from the children "Dance-fantastic!! Coco-latey!!! Choco .... Choco!!!!" Looks like the sea breeze has had an interesting effect.

More challenges - what to have for cooked lunch?



Off to the beach today with some spending money for buckets and spades.

Mmmmmmm - Stomachs full with sausages, bacon, beans, waffles, eggs, toast, fruit, porridge and yoghurts!!! Now off for a lovely stroll on the beach in the glorious sunshine.

Just been to the shops -lots of money spent already! Especially on Fish and Chip flavoured rock. Challenges have come in the form of what flavoured ice-cream to have - life can be tough!


All arrived safely and settling in.


Activities so far have been - climbing, kayaking and giant Cluedo. It's all been go, go go . Some rain but plenty of fun.

Children finally dried out after most of them fell/ jumped into the lake on purpose when kayaking. The teachers are pretty sure several midnight feasts took place during the night.

Rooms are fantastic - Heidi Ho Campers
