Boarders Camp Out

For our second weekend of term all of our boarders (and a few day children who opted to be in) set off for camping on the edge of our school grounds. The weather was very kind to us with a beautifully clear Autumn evening. Much fun was had constructing the tents in groups and deciding who would sleep where. After camp set up the fire needed to be lit and many volunteers were enlisted to collect enough wood and sticks to last the night. A fun game of ‘capture the glow sticks’ was enjoyed by one and all, including the staff! A pre-bedtime treat of toasting marshmallows swiftly followed and then it was time to brush teeth and snuggle into sleeping bags for a cosy night under canvas.
