Adventure School – preparing for expansion

Battling through the undergrowth

Adventure School is going from strength to strength – it’s really popular with the students and staff, and we are always looking to see how we can improve it and make it better.

So, for the first session this week we put some time (and effort) into expanding the workable area we currently have. You see, in the long term we have plans have a main hub, a shelter building and camping area, as well as soft archery ranges, a slackline area, as well as permanent shelter / classroom and a designated all-year-round hammock area.

All of the students worked really hard, awing, cutting and removing dead wood and lots of brambles. We have a long way to go, but it was good progress. The students enjoyed some popcorn and s’mores around the camp fire later that morning as a ‘thank you’ treat.

Onward and upward!
