P7 Kilbowie Trip
This year’s Primary 7 trip to Kilbowie will be from Monday 20th June 2016 until Friday 25th June 2016.
Tonight we did the Nightline. It was an activity that used lots of teamwork. First we had to get ready for the mud! Then we got blindfolded. We had to make our way through the course following the rope in complete darkness. There were obstacles to climb over, under and through. It was a lot of fun!
Some of us went on a adventure walk this morning! We found a hobbit house and a hobbit kitchen! We climbed a big mountain. It was so windy Miss Hosie had to climb on her hands and knees. There were lots of great views of Kilbowie, down to Oban and over to Kerrera Island. We also found a hill that we rolled down. Super fun!
Today lots of us went gorge walking in the rain. We went on a short bus drive to get there, then tried to see who could keep our feet the driest. The gorge was 4x fuller that it would be normally so we all got extremely wet. We slid down a waterfall and all got completley soaked. It was great fun!
At the skiing, we started going down the hill on one foot. One we had practiced lots we put on two skies and went higher up the hill. We started going over the hill and doing some jumps if we could. Some of us were more balanced than others.
At supper time last night we enjoyed singing “Happy Birthday” and really enjoyed sharing some birthday cake!!
We have arrived!
So far we have made our beds (some more successfully that others!!), collected our kit and some of us have met our instructors (the rest of us will meet our instructors tomorrow). We have also taken part in our first activity.
Some of us have already been soaked to the skin when we walked into the sea and we have all braved the wild winds which are currently blowing round the centre.
At the moment we have some free time before we head for dinner. We’ll update you (hopefully with some photos) again later.
