Woodlands – Day 3

posted in: Maple | 0

Another very windy day which saw the children beating their fears on the high ropes course and down in the caves.  Two groups spent the day tackling the high ropes course where the children really stepped up to the responsibility of supporting each other as they tackled obstacles between the trees.  We were so impressed with the way the children encouraged and helped each other to all achieve and surpass the personal goals they had set themselves.  Great fun was had on the zip wire as we launched out of the tree and on the climbing well so many of them reached the top and rang the bell!

One group spent the day in the caves squashing themselves through a variety of different shaped tunnels.  The children were amazing in their resilience and worked superbly as a team helping each other throughout the day.  We saw that the first person to enter the cave was in 1723 as it was chalked on the entrance to the cave and they were fascinated by the falconer who was training her hawk before they entered the caves.

We returned in the evening to a delicious roast dinner after which we spent the evening outside orienteering and now everyone is tucked up in bed asleep ready for another day of adventures.  Hope you are all ready for a lot of very muddy washing coming your way!
