Year 7 Camp

29 Jun 2015

Cheshire was the venue for Year 7 camp this year. We all slept under canvas. Students were given the opportunity to work with others from within their own tutor group and interact with students they may not have worked with in school. Many of the activities allowed for team building. All students experienced new activities which required resilience. They included a Climbing Wall, Low ropes and High Ropes,  a Wall of Friendship, Canoeing and Raft Building and Archery. One of the days was taken up by a 10 mile hike which all students completed and involved them map reading to navigate their way.

An unplanned highlight was when an outside set for Coronation Street was constructed in the extended site. Students were able to walk close to the clearing they were using and a few met and had photographs taken with some of the actors. Fortunately for us the weather held, contributing towards making the week enjoyable and challenging for all.
