Water Park Day 3

Another restful night with lots more children needing waking in the morning.

Day 2 of making our own packed lunches was much more successful we then had crumpets for breakfast and got ready for our activities.

Pink Group:  They began their day with some climbing.  The group paddled a canoe across Coniston water and then took a short walk up to the cliff face.  Here everyone was able to climb to the top more than once.   After lunch the group went out for some kayaking.   They learned how to paddle their own kayak and played some games (and splashed lots).  Then the group spent the rest of the afternoon jumping off a jetty into the water or sliding into the water on the back of a giant canoe…lots of fun!

Red Group:  Today was their journey day.  The day began with a walk up onto the hills behind Waterpark.  Everyone said that the views were amazing!  Back on the lower ground, the group had a picnic lunch by the water in the beautiful sunshine.   They made their way back to Waterpark on two group sailing boats.

Green Group:  The children had a busy day today; they began their day with three different team-building activities and then time on the low-ropes course.  After lunch they took to the water for some kayaking – again they proved to be great using the boats on their own.  Finally the children paired up to take part in a sailing activity. They were whipping down the lake in no time!

Blue Group:  Blue group were also on their journey day today.   They began by taking a short mini bus ride to Hodge Close Quarry where they learnt about how slate was mined in the past.  The views from the top and inside the quarry were spectacular! We then journeyed on, walking through some beautiful countryside. Next the children visited Little Langdale Quarry where they ventured into a cave by candlelight and were very brave to exit the cave using teamwork and their sense of touch alone……very scary!! Well Done children!
