Day Two


After a varied night’s sleep (for some!), the children split into their groups to undertake a variety of activities such as caving, high ropes, RNLI visit and an afternoon of problem solving followed by a walk to beach where we saw some seals playing in the harbour. 


The cavers overcame some fears and showed determination as they scrambled, climbed and slid into the belly of the cave. 


The team at the centre went to new heights as they braved the high ropes in high winds. Jacob’s ladder and the leap of faith were all conquered by various individuals. 


The fifth team ventured into Brixham and toured the RNLI centre. They were really fortunate to see some seals in the harbour. 


The afternoon turned a little cool as the children worked together to solve various problems. Communicating well and thinking things through, they had to ensure their whole team travelled across a plank maze. 


The light began to fade as we trekked down to the beach where once again the seals came out to play.


A feast of a meal made up of sausages and mash or fish fingers was devoured followed by a huge slab of chocolate brownie with ice cream. 


An evening walk to the town to see the Christmas lights is planned this evening before we all climb into our jammies for a good night’s sleep.

Day One 


We arrived safely and all the children undertook their first challenge - to put a duvet cover on their duvet and fitted sheet on a mattress! They sorted their rooms and settled for some lunch. 


After lunch, we wrapped up warm and headed to Berry Head for a few hours of orienteering. This activity encouraged the children to work as a team and explore their environment.    


As the light faded, we settled back into the centre to warm up and enjoy some down time before dinner.
