Camping and Activities
Fifty seven Junior Boys from Year 5 and 6 travelled to Longridge, Marlow for two days of outward bound activities and camping. All the pupils arrived early on the Friday morning and the first task was to set up camp, all the boys were responsible for setting up their own tents and making their beds for the overnight adventure.
When everything was in place, it was straight into groups and off for a day full of activities. Each year group was separated into four groups and through the two days got to experience a whole range of different activities from - kayaking, raft building, sailing, water zorbing, giant swinging, climbing, dragon boating, bell boating, go karting and leap of faith.
All the pupils took on these tasks, some with huge amounts of enthusiasm and confidence and some with trepidation. However, all pupils gave everything a go and the activities provided an excellent opportunity for the pupils to work together to overcome challenges while learning how to cooperate and work effectively in team situations. But most importantly it was a huge amount of fun.
After a BBQ dinner the evening was spent playing team building games and was finished with a good old fashioned sing song around the campfire. The following morning pupils were responsible for taking down their tents before one last activity session. Great fun was had by all and we look forward to returning next year.
