We have now departed the centre after our final activities this morning. The children have had an amazing time and the staff commended the children and staff for their engagement, positive attitudes and motivational quotes across the week.


Further updates of our arrival will be shared once we have completed the ferry crossing, so please do check regularly.

The children are all packed and the room inspections begin. Soon, we are off for breakfast before our final two activities, including Aeroball and problem solving.


All of the children are very much looking forward to seeing everyone on their return.

Final night! Tonight we finished our evening activities with a disco. We all sang and danced the whole time. Children are now packing in their rooms before settling down to bed.

The children have had an adrenaline-filled afternoon session of abseiling, rock climbing and more children playing laser tag - for some reason, they were intent of getting Mr Elliott!


The children are now off to their final dinner of the trip before getting ready for the disco this evening.

A mixture of vertical challenge, giant swing, orienteering and laser tag so far this morning. The children have built up an appetite for lunch before two more activities this afternoon. However, we are already getting questions about the disco, so we are looking forward to witnessing the dance moves.

The children are up and about this morning, confronting many fears. We have already had several children overcome their fear of heights on the vertical challenge, with lots of motivational chants, encouragement and advice. As a result, the smiles are radiating and the sun is shining. We are in for a warm, sunny day ahead of the disco this evening.

Tonight we had another full dinner and started the evening with a sing song. Then our evening activity was archery tag, which involved us playing archery in teams. We then had some free time in our cabins and some children chose to play basketball with some teachers. We are all now starting to settle in our rooms and get ready for bed. 

This afternoon children have continued to complete activities including:Jacobs ladder, giant swing , survivor, matrix and sensory trail! Now we are enjoying a little time in their rooms before enjoying our dinner!
