This is an overnight trip for 30 children from 5pm on a Friday night to 4pm on Saturday. It usually takes place in either May or June. This year the trip is Friday 17th to Saturday 18th June.
We have a meeting with children and parents in the Autumn term to explain what to expect on this trip and another meeting in the Spring term to hand out the kit list and programme of activities.
The activities usually include den building, zip wire, buggy riding and indoor climbing. There are pictures in our photo gallery (2017-18) of last year's trip. Such fun!
Three members of staff go with the children and we are very aware of the fact that this is often the children's first time away from home without their family. We take night lights, books, story tapes and cuddly toys to try to allay any anxieties-especially at bed time.
It is great fun and a fabulous experience for all who go.
