Dear Diary....

Monday 9th May

We have arrived safe and sound at Grosvenor Hall - Kingswood in Kent. We are already having a lovely day! We have had a picnic and settled into our rooms. The pictures show the front of our ‘lodges’. After a tour of the site, we have just set off on our first activity.

Tuesday 10th May

Last night was great! We took part in a fun quiz before settling down in our rooms, still buzzing from the excitement of our first day here at Kingswood. What a great start to our week!


After a good night's sleep, we woke up and had a good hearty breakfast ready to start the daily activities. 


This morning, the groups did the 'Night Line', Orienteering, High Equilibrium or the Environmental Art activity before chilling out and having a little rest before lunch.


After lunch, we split into our groups again and enjoyed an afternoon of either Orienteering, Roller Disco, Problem Solving or the High Equilibrium activity.


We are now looking forward to our evening activity - 'The Scrapheap Challenge'!  I wonder what we'll make...?

Wednesday 11th May

This morning, we’ve been reducing our fear of heights (or even conquering it!). We’ve also been problem solving and playing some team games including kicking cricket!


Have a look at some of our highlights from today's activities, including the high ropes, the nightline, and various other activities in the gallery above.


We've experienced so much already and can't wait to see what fun we'll have tomorrow!

Thursday 12th May

Today was absolutely fantastic!


We had an amazing time learning to build and constructing our own rafts! Some were successful but one didn't quite manage to stay together and we all ended up jumping in and getting wet! It was so funny and such an amazing experience!


We also learnt how to build shelters, played laser tag and had lots of fun on a 3G swing!
