Duke's Barn Trip 2017
Duke's Barn Day 3
Duke's Barn Day 2
Day two of our adventure in Derbyshire. After what can only be described as a 'mixed' night of sleeping and chatting, the children prepared for a full day of activities. They got off to a good start with a hearty meal of cereals and a cooked breakfast of sausages, bacon and beans. This seemed to rejuvenate everyone and the groups headed off to their venue full of high spirits. Whilst one group went abseiling and another caving the Badgers group set off to the High Peak to go weaseling. Weaseling is best described as a scramble over, under and around rocks. Some of the passages between the rocks were very tiny and the children had to squeeze through them to complete the challenge. The children have impressed us with their determination and their willingness to have a go even when they have been unsure whether to join in with the activity. The weather was kind and so it was bright but cold but there was no sign of rain.
After the children returned to Dukes Barn, they refuelled with sandwiches, cake and fruit before starting the afternoon activities.
This evening the adults are planning a campfire with songs and hot chocolate which will hopefully end the evening with a tired group of children who will enjoy a longer sleep than Monday night.
