Day 2 ...in the Wilderness house
Posted by Mr A Hart
The first night has been and gone. We've had some tears, some forgotten teddies and a bit of a drama, but that's enough about Mr Hart and Miss Fitzgerald. The children have settled into life in the Wilderness house well. The tunnels appear to be many of the childrens' personal highlight but having experienced what else the camp has to offer, I'm positive that that will change. We had a nice evening stroll around the picturesque grounds yesterday, where we saw some sheep (Mr Hart felt very much at home) and horses. We enjoyed looking for the Wild boar tracks but unfortunately we weren't able to see any of these magnificent creatures.The children also went through the wishing tree. As always with these things, you can't tell anyone what to wish for as it won't come true...Mr Hart's did involve rugby though... The second day will be survival day.That is not because some of the children will be working hard with a lot less sleep, but they will be looking at ways to survive in the woods. Looking at the weather this morning, the children will need to learn these skills quickly to ensure we all stay warm and dry. Hopefully a nice full breakfast for those who asked for one, will set us up for the second day.
