Kilbowie – Wednesday 11th March

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.

Kilbowie – Tuesday 10th March (cont.)

This afternoon we have had groups canoeing and on safari.  There are an awful lot of very soggy clothes in the centre at the moment!!  Many people have been surprised at just how cold the sea is!!  Below are some of the photos which the instructors have taken (the first few are from yesterday afternoon, you can see how windy it was!).  I’ve not been able to get all the cameras this evening so not everyone is pictured but we’ll take some more during the evening activities.  We’re just about to head in for dinner and then we are going to be playing an orienteering team game.

Kilbowie – Tuesday 10th March

Everyone is off on their activities so I’m able to give you a quick update.  Everything was fine during the night with all the children in bed by 10pm.

This morning we have two groups canoeing (as the wind had died down a lot), two groups on a safari around the grounds and one group rock climbing.  Below are some photos of the groups getting ready.  We should be able to post some more of their activities later on.

Kilbowie – Monday 9th March (cont.)

It’s almost time for bed.  Since our last post we have had dinner and played an A-Z Scavenger Hunt.  Two of our teams managed to find an item for every letter of the alphabet.  Below are some photos of us having fun, one of the big waves one of our star bed maker!

Next we’re going to have supper and then we’re off to bed.  We’ll post more tomorrow.  Night night.

Kilbowie – Monday 9th March

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.
