Day 6 Last Full Day

We have been out on a hill trail; we had to use all the skills we have learnt this week to navigate our way back to the centre. Our reward was a fantastic fun afternoon zip-wiring and messing out in the Rhos y gorge.

Day 4 Sailing on Lake Bala & Rock Climbing

 

Today's Blog is by Harry, Charlie & Ananya.

 The sun shone today and we sailed on Lake Bala in sailing boats called  'Laser Picos'.  Paul( our instructor taught ius how too construct the boats and gave us some basic sailing tips. We were then let loose. Lots of us ended up in the water; it was a good chance to face our fears.   We had to sail about three miles up the lake and  tack back.

Rock climbing.

 Our group went rock climbing, it was really high and scary. We all reached the top of the cliff and abseiled down.  We faced our fear of heights today, it was misty but brilliant, we felt very proud.

Day 3

 Lots of fun, above and below the ground today: Sailing on Lake Bala and Exploring the mine

Maddy D

" I thought sailing was very exciting, even though i was a bit nervous at first, I soon overcame my fears."

 

Harry:

We went caving in an old mine: it was fun we got to  climb up a waterfall and abseil down the other side. I overcame my fear of darkness by turning torches off and then blowing candles out. Complete blackness.

 

Gabe: " Sailing was wet, really really wet. "

 

Maddy :  The mine was  wet, slippy & soggy but I managed to climb up the waterfall, so 'I'm very proud of myself"

Ahoy sailors!

We have had great fun today conquering our fears. Group one went deep underground, exploring an old slate mine, whilst Group Two climbed to the heavens at Ffestinog. A lively night last night  and lots of fresh air has meant peace tonight. Here are a few snaps of today to keep you all going.
