Osmington Bay Residential 2017 - updates
Watch this space for daily updates from Osmington Bay!
Some very sleepy children this morning! All the fresh air and activities (and chatting late at night) have taken their toll! Today has been busy with zip wire, Jacob's ladder, rifle shooting, beach walks and fencing. The children have been getting braver as the week has progressed - look at this 'leap of faith' on the trapeze!
It's the disco tonight.
As previously, today's pictures have been added to the slideshow below.
Another good night's sleep for (most of) the children. The wind picked up a bit again, and it's been a bit wet! The day involved exploring the beach, abseiling and conquering fears with the trapeze - it wasn't too windy for this luckily. We are incredibly proud of the children and their attitude towards the challenges they are facing in the activities.
The evening entertainment has been 'Ambush'. It turns out Miss Dyer and Mrs Churchill are very good at hiding, then jumping out on children who are running around with torches in the dark! Great fun had by all ...we are hoping this will tire them out for another good night of sleeping!!
Only two sleeps to go - the week is really flying by!
The children slept well last night. Weather was fine this morning, but they have all had a drenching this afternoon.
It has been a really great day, the children and adults have had a real action packed day with some adrenaline rush activities. Some tears from children that then turned to joy at overcoming the challenge. In particular the giant swing definitely creates these feelings in many children. The vast majority did achieve this, as did many of the adults.
The wind has completely dropped today and this morning was super: dry, relatively warm with a lovely sunrise this morning. The afternoon was a 'little' wet but everyone still enjoyed themselves and then went back to shower, get changed and enjoy an excellent tea followed by jam sponge and custard.
The activities are definitely Mrs Wake's highlight of the day but for many children she does believe the highlight was spending their pound at the shop!!!
The day finished with chocolate birthday cake enjoyed by all.
We left Leesland at about 10.30am and arrived at Osmington Bay at 1pm. After lunch, we enjoyed both orienteering and archery. These were great fun.
As it has been quite windy, PGL decided to cancel the evening campfire. We have all eaten well and are enjoying ourselves
Tomorrow's activities include the Giant Swing, Climbing, Aeroball and Tunnel trail.
