Today's activities:

Group 1 - Mountain walking & gorge walking

Group 2 - Canoeing

Group 3 - Caving


Our walkers scrambled up a river and had lots of wet fun taking on challenges in the water. Splashing about in the pools and floating down the river brought many smiles to our faces. We also went for a walk but a lot of the time we were actually running!

The canoeing group joined canoes together to work as a team and took on the challenge of paddling whilst standing up. Towards the end of the day we made a slide out of a canoe and slid down it into the water.

The caving brought many challenges and helped many of us face our fears. There was a lot of teamwork and support coming from the group. We thought it may be hard to squeeze through some of the gaps but we persevered and were proud of our efforts.

In the evening we went to the climbing wall and took on the challenge of using the grips to travel across the wall. We also played different games that helped us practise some of our climbing skills.


Before bed, we discussed our week and we all agreed that we had overcome many challenges. We were very appreciative of all the support we have been sharing and we talked about all the new experiences we have been exposed to. We are very thankful to our parents for allowing us this opportunity.
