Excited for our adventures ahead we travelled to Low Bank Ground in Coniston. We were welcomed with the beautiful view of lakes and mountains.  

We were kitted out with waterproofs and boots ready for our first activities. Team A enjoyed a walk around Tarn Hows and spent time looking at the nature around us which included a heron and Belted Galloway cattle.


Team B explored Grisedale Forest, playing Hide and Seek on our way up to the viewpoint. Some of us climbed through a tunnel. Great teamwork was shown with everyone encouraging and helping each other.


We enjoyed spaghetti bolognaise followed by chocolate brownie and ice cream for tea before our evening activities. We had lots of laughs playing team games.

We fueled up with cereal, toast, bacon and egg ready for a fun-filled day. Team effort was needed for canoeing on Lake Coniston. Team A worked well as a team and paddled all the way across the lake and back!


Team B showed amazing courage ghyl scrambling. The team worked together to climb a waterfall. The feeling of the cool mist on our faces was a fantastic experience…and very refreshing.


After a pack-up lunch Team A headed on the minibus to Little Langdale Quarries. We walked through the cave and had fun listening to the echoes. We enjoyed a hot chocolate in the cave and walked over Slater’s Bridge.
