Derwent Hill


We had the best time on Derwent water this morning after a hearty breakfast. The wind was strong and the rain was heavy, yet that didn’t effect how much fun we had. After travelling to One Tree Island we played fruit salad, chase the bacon, a pirate game and races between the two groups. Of course Miss Smith’s Group Genius came out on top!

We’re off to the big swing this afternoon.



After a pleasant journey we’ve all settled in so well. Each group took part in their first team activity after a delicious lunch, activities involved: fire starting, toasting marshmallows, hill walks, rambling up Lador falls and blind mind challenges.

After tea, two groups went for a thrilling night walk and the others took part in a group quiz and challenge night. It’s safe to say everyone had so much fun - with a special well done to Molly for winning the clothing challenge with a whopping 21 items!
