We are home after a brilliant final day!  Last night, we all went to sleep so quickly and needed waking up this morning!  After making another sandwich and eating a hearty breakfast we headed off for our last activity of the trip.

Group 1 enjoyed camp cookery, group 2 did crate stacking and group 3 took on the zip wire.  All of the groups really enjoyed their final activity and it was wonderful to see the children supporting and encouraging each other right the way to the end.

It has been a jam packed day!  The morning started off with breakfast followed by sandwich making before we headed off on our second activity of the trip.  Group 1 tackled the zip wire, group 2 went canoeing and group 3 enjoyed camp fire cookery. 

After a busy morning we had our lunch in the sunny garden and enjoyed playing lots of different games together.  Then in the afternoon it was off for another activity with group 1 heading off to the river to canoe, group 2 climbing...

Day one of Horstead has been great!  We arrived and set off for a lovely lunch by the River Bure.  Then, we headed back to the centre for our first activity.  One group enjoyed canoeing with their boats tied together to ensure they were more stable on the fuller river.  They paddled quite a way upstream and got really good at paddling!  Another group had to work in pairs to take on crate stacking.  Everyone worked really hard with the best group creating a tower 15 crates high!  The...

We have arrived safely home!  Experts by now, we made our sandwiches and fuelled up with breakfast ready for the day ahead.  We enjoyed our final activities before we had our last lunch and said thank you and goodbyes to the Centre staff.  The trip has been so much fun and we can’t wait to tell you all about it!

The day started with us making our sandwiches and the enjoying a yummy breakfast of cereal, toast and yoghurt.  After this, we put on our waterproofs and braved the elements for our first activity of the day.  All of the groups worked really well together, listening to instructions to learn new skills and conquer personal challenges.

We had an indoor picnic for lunch, including an amazing homemade flapjack, to prepare us for a busy afternoon of activities.  The sun finally shone...

We have arrived!  When we first got to the centre, we headed off to the River Bure for a walk and picnic lunch.  It was lovely to get some fresh air and blow the cobwebs away.  After we had settled into our rooms, we set off on our first activity.  Some of us went back to the river for canoeing, another group worked in pairs to take on the crate stacking, and a different group made and cooked bread around the camp fire whilst the last group took to the sky on the climbing wall and zi...

Last night we enjoyed a fabulous barbecue followed by our campfire - confidently lit by Mr Hepburn and songs led by Mrs Hammond. Our final morning here and we have all completed our activities and had more fun. Camp Cooking was exciting as we mixed our bread mixture and cooked it on the fire with a stick. It was delicious! Very sticky with jam and honey! Lunch in the sunshine on the patio was followed by the loading of luggage onto the coach to come home. Not too many wet clothes or...

All arrived safely and very excited! Lovely walk and picnic down by the River Bure. All have taken part in activities including canoeing, crate-stacking, zip wire and camp cooking - making bread!
It's so much fun and many nerves have completely disappeared.
Now raining but no-one seems to mind.
