What a great first day we have had!
We arrived safely this morning and set to with our first challenge - bed making! The children all survived and un-packed their bags before tucking in to their packed lunches.
Our afternoon was action packed! We had groups navigating the grounds with maps duing orienteering before shooting their arrows towards the archery targets; two groups were on Derwent water paddling hard in kayaks and canoe rafts and a final group loved scrambling up the ghyll. After eating our delicious evening meal the children washed up and tidied the dining room. Torches in hand, we set off on our night walk around the grounds of Hawse End. They are all in bed and hopefully fast asleep and re-fuelling ready for tomorrow.
Sleep well all. Photos here.
