Our first afternoon at Derwent Hill
We arrived safe and sound just before lunchtime and after an initial short briefing with our instructors about team work and our forthcoming challenges, we went off to find our bedrooms, and then we had to make our own beds, and make sure our rooms were tidy!!! Soon after, it was time for lunch where we met the children from Seaburn Dene and Benedict Biscop schools. We are all getting along great and think we are going to make some good friends and we have settled in well. We split into our groups and went off with our instructors. Group 1 went around the grounds and played on the low ropes and Group 2 went for a walk around the lake and up to the waterfalls, discovering the temperate forest and wild garlic, sorrel and pignut. We are off for another adventure tonight. Tune in tomorrow and find out about all about our next adventure.
