Hooray! All the staff are so proud of the children, they are being so enthusiastic and well behaved. The week is flying by and everyone is super excited for tomorrow.

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!

Howtown Day One

We had a good journey down the M6. Fabulous sunshine awaited us in Ullswater. The infamous first activity began the weeks events! We have all enjoyed a jog and dip in the beautiful lake.

After a hearty evening meal, we've enjoyed some evening activities, including orienteering and night line. We are very much looking forward to tomorrow's adventures.

Day 4 and still enjoying every minute!

Another great day had by all, despite the heavy rain. Most teams went on a long hill walk. They travelled by steamer on the lake and then hiked in the hills. Members of the team were responsible for navigating using an ordinance survey map (no sat nav required!) Pleased to report that all managed to not get lost!

Lasagne, jacket potatoes, sweet and sour pork or chicken curry all on offer for tonight's feast.

Howtown Day Three 2015

Each group rotated to enjoy another busy day of activities. One group scaled a huge fell while others canoed and bathed in waterfalls. We've had a little rain and light winds today but spirits have remained high. Tonight's evening tasks include tunnelling and orienteering followed by hot chocolate! Children are being fantastic in every aspect, a good time being had by all.

Action Packed Day Two

We have been busy doing a plethora of activities today such as: rock climbing, gorge walking, shelter building, bush craft, canoeing, orienteering, fire starting and more! All of which we enjoyed under a beautiful sunny sky. The weather has been fantastic and so have the children. They have met every challenge with enthusiasm and willingness. We are having a fabulous time and looking forward to tomorrow's adventures.

The view over Ullswater this evening.


Hello from Howtown

Arrived safely, leaving behind the drizzle, to be greeted by glorious sunshine. All settled in to their dorms and have met our instructors for the week. Everyone has enjoyed a jog and dip initiation to life on a lake. We are proud of all the children (and some staff!) who challenged themselves beyond their comfort zone to endure the coldness of the water. Great fun had by all!

Delicious dinner of homemade sausage rolls, macaroni cheese and beef stew and dumplings which all the children devoured after an active afternoon.

We are all looking forward to all the exciting activities that lie ahead. Spirits are high and we hope that the weather stays nice.

Howtown Day Four 2014

The children have enjoyed a fantastic last full day in the Lake District and are now toasting marshmallows on the camp fire!

Mrs. Hawkesworth's group spent the day on a hill walk along Gowk Hill and Steel Knots, enjoying the spectatular views.

Many of the other children took part in activities on the lake including canoeing and raft building, then ending up in the warm bath of Lake Ullswater!

Tunnelling and the challenge course developed the children's teamwork skills today and they were all extremely brave.

We are planning to leave the centre at 12pm tomorrow to arrive back at school for 4.30. We will keep you updated via text.
