Ardentinny 2012

Stuck in the mud!
Learning to steer the canoe

Primary 7 children have just returned from a visit to Ardentinny Outdoor Education Centre, near Dunoon.  The children had a fantastic time and their behaviour was excellent – a real credit to Carlibar.  They enjoyed a range of activities including canoeing, rock climbing, gorge walking, orienteering, hill walking, seashore trail and a night walk  in the woods behind the centre.  They also took part in team challenges which helped them to develop skills such as negotiation,  making decisions, taking risks and working co-operatively.

The weather was good for the week with the exception of it being week one of the midge season!!!  Plenty of midge repellant cream was required and the midge hoods were well used by everyone throughout the week.
