Whilst there we sailed Keelboats,did the zip wire,low ropes and problem solving. We also raced dragons, did orienteering,navigated the night line,danced at the disco,toasted marshmallows and played Mrs Nolan's Bingo !
The children were impeccably well behaved. The centre staff commented on what a super group of children they were. Thank you to all who made it possible.
Well done everyone!
