Year 6 Residential - Scouts Activity Centre Youlbury (Day 1)
Day 1 - Monday 6th February
After a delayed start waiting for the coach to arrive we got to Youlbury in good time and good spirits! The adventure activity site is huge and very muddy but brilliant.
After choosing rooms we went straight out in our groups for Orienteering and Team Building, no time to hang around here.
We came back to the lodge for cheesy vegetable and chicken home made delicious pizzas. This was followed up by the children's favourite: waffles, ice cream and toffee sauce.
The rain had started to come down and the sun had well and truly disappeared, but this wasn't going to stop us. We braved the elements and went out again for an evening abseil (by floodlights) and indoor archery. "Scary at first but exhilarating" raved Karla, Chloe and Yandra!
Everyone was cold and a little wet so coming back to the warm lodge for hot chocolate was amazing before bedtime. More activities and updates to come tomorrow, stay tuned.
