Ferny Crofts Scout Camp
Last week Year 4 travelled down to ferny crofts Scout Camp for a 3 day residential. Check out the gallery below to see what they got up to!!
Big smiles as we arrive!
The children were sure to throw themselves into their first activity of the afternoon. (Quite literally!)
Have you ever seen a chess board this big?
Teambuilding activities that were not as easy as they look
What better place to play Sniper Sniper, than in the woods?!
We had a little visitor who flew by to take part in our game of Sniper Sniper
Every morning we had mr heaven write some advice/question/qoute for the day
Smiles all around as we get ready for breakfast
One of the activities of the trip was a climbing wall
Took a lot of effort from the whole team to help their fellow classmates climb the wall
How high can you go?
some would say the best part was on the way down
How many people can you fit on a climbing wall?
Putting those arm muscles to use
Next to tackle the adventure course
to climb over the wall took teamwork and resilience
Who’s hands are these?…
On to the next obstacle of the course
Lots of encouragment from fellow teammates
A nice warm hot chocolate from the kettle
Marshmallows and bread on a stick
A test to see if the students can create a shelter in the wilderness with limited materials
A picture trail around the scout camp was a good test of our orienteering knowledge
In the evening we had a cup stacking tournament!
The teams went head to head to see who could stack cups the fastest
Another morning another board!
breakfast for the last time
The last and final game of Sniper Sniper in the woods.
an intense game of dodgeballs with staff vs students
a hunt to find ammunition
Matching the colours in the briefcase
And to mark the end the ferny crofts box was blown up!
