Skern Lodge - July 2019

Skern Lodge


Monday 8th July - We arrived at Skern just before lunchtime and ate when we arrived. After refuelling we were straight out to climb and abseil!


This evening we will be having dinner and taking part in some games! 


Tuesday 9th July - Good morning from sunny Appledore! We are looking forward to a day of kayaking,  beach games and shelter building! The children had a settled first night and are rejuvenated ready for the day ahead!


Wednesday 10th July - Today we did the assault course, archery and rafting. Fantastic team work and great resilience. They did a scavenger hunt after dinner, where they really impressed us with their organisation and communication. Other than a rogue sock or two, they are keeping their dorms tidy too!


Thursday 11th July - The children have been surfing this morning and that was fantastic. Lots of children able to stand up, and no one giving up if they couldn't. They also had the opportunity to use a body board and were happily riding the waves on that. This afternoon we are on the high ropes, which involve challenges like the leap of faith .The  children also have a disco this evening with the other schools and they are all very excited!
