Howtown 2017 Day Two

Following a good night's sleep, we woke to the gorgeous views of Ullswater, covered in a blanket of mist. After a hearty breakfast, the children embarked on their first full day of activites in the glorious sunshine. Team persuits included gorge walking, canoeing, hill walking and bushcraft. Everyone demonstrated superb collaboration, perseverance and resilience skills whilst working as a team to complete their tasks successfully.
Yet again, Pete the chef served up a delicious array of food which was gratefully  received after a very rewarding day. Hot chocolate and biscuits await the children following their evening activities before watching a film and having an early night!!

Howtown 2017 Day One

We arrived in the picturesque Lake District just in time for lunch. After devouring our sandwiches and snacks we found out where our dorms were and set off on our first challenge: making our beds! Once this task was complete (it took a while) we collected our bags and settled in to our rooms.

After this, we met our instructors and set off on our first activity - jog and dip. The lake was far from being on the toasty side, however we were extremely brave and conquered this task with chattering teeth smiles on our faces.

We had a lovely dinner of either: sausage casserole, sweet chilli chicken, mince and dumplings or macaroni cheese as well as many other options.

The children thoroughly enjoyed our first selection of evening activities followed by a hot chocolate and cookie.

Over and out from the Howtown Team!

Howtown: Last Day Reflections

Thanks girls for summing up such an amazing week so creatively! Safe journey home.

Howtown Rescue: Saving Private Cowdery!

An amazing afternoon rowing across the lake, made all the more enjoyable by rescuing Mrs Cowdery's canoe and her shipmates!

Hasten to say, all are safe and well ;-)

Day Two Howtown

Another beautiful day in Howtown today. The weather is being kind so far. Lots of exciting activities have begun: two groups climbed hills over 400 feet above sea level, two groups experienced a soaking on the gorge walk and one group have swung from a trapeze.

Lots of team building, perseverance and fun!

After a delicious supper the childen have enjoyed a range of night activities.

All are sure to sleep well tonight!
