            Water Park Lakeland Adventure Centre - May 2018



2 - 14<>


Monday 4th June: We arrived and settled quickly. We fuelled up with lunch and ventured out to our afternoon activities. Two groups went Ghyll Scrambling and the other went Kayaking. Everyone got stuck in and were very excited to be here.  After tea, we played some outdoor games but had to come in early after being eaten alive by midges! The children have settled well to bed (we hope) and are raring to go for the first full day tomorrow. Enjoy the quiet PBS Staff team

Tuesday 5th June: The weather has once again been glorious here at Waterpark. Most of the children woke up nice and early and were raring to go; some of them woke up VERY early. The cooked breakfast got everyone fuelled and ready for an action packed day. The groups were on the ropes courses, kayaking, sailing and ghyll scrambling today. The children revelled in getting into the lake, and were jumping in at any given opportunity. There were some great stories of children overcoming their fears too. Emily managed to capsize her boat after much encouragement and from that point loved being in the water. Jamie-Lee overcame his fear of being in deep water and slowly managed to kayak out onto the middle of the lake. Alesha McKenzie seemed to inhale about 50 midges in the spaces of about 15 minutes whilst kayaking. Charlie found a new love for just floating on the water and would perhaps live on the water now! Leah and Erin quickly got the hang of sailing and had the boat leaning skills down to a tee. They enjoyed their curry for tea and settled very well to bed after a wide game outside and a story with Mr Robinson.Wednesday 6th June: We have had another long, tiring and fun day. Groups have been out on the lake windsurfing (without any wind), canoeing to peel island to see the inspiration behind Swallows and Amazons and one group have had a journey day, which was a long walk up a hillside above the lake and canoeing back after lunch. Everyone is tired (which is making bed time a doddle!) but have got stuck in to everything once again. We have even found some children with secret talents for washing-up too! Mrs Anderton went home today and Mrs Harland joined us until the end of the week. Everyone is happy and well PBS staff team  Thursday 7th June: The last full day has been such a lot of fun but also quite a physically challenging day for many of us. Two groups went on their journey day, which was an expedition to the summit of ‘The Old Man of Coniston’; the largest mountain in the area! The children found this tough going as the weather was very hot! One group managed to get to the very top, whilst the other almost made it; stopping at the tarn just below the top. The long slog up the hill was rewarded with excellent views of the lakes and mountains and a refreshing walk back down to the bottom. The other group went rock climbing before lunch and paddle boarding in the afternoon. The whole group managed to stand up on their paddle board by the end of the session and lots of them even managed to paddle across the lake a bit. We have had such a great time so far and we are really looking forward to coming home to see you all. PBS Staff Team
