Tuesday dawned a beautiful, sunny but slightly cool morning. After a reasonable night's sleep (most asleep by 10.20pm but awake again by 6am) the children were raring to go for a day full of activities. Breakfast time included making their own packed lunches and then a tidy up around the centre and the Dorms.
Then it was off out on activities.
During the day, groups went out to Llyn Geirionydd to canoe on the calm and reflective waters. Lots of splashing, racing, putting faces....and bottoms....in the water ensued before a huge splash around after. The children ended up with almost as much lake water inside their jackets and trousers as was in the lake!
There was some more gorge walking, sliding down waterfalls, squeezing through big rocks and jumping and falling backwards into deep rock pools.
The children were challenged to make their way around a series of rope courses, encouraging and helping each other to overcome some initial fears.
An evening walk followed tea time, with great views across to Snowdonia and has used up some remaining energy. I'm sure the children will sleep very well tonight.
Our last activity tomorrow morning will be Orienteering around the extensive centre grounds in small teams.
All of the children have been fantastic this week, rising to challenges, working together in teams, encouraging each other and organising themselves. It has been a great pleasure to bring them all to Nant BH this week.
