This was a full on Activity Day which was brilliant fun. It consisted of two adventurous activities during the day which were Ghyll Walking and exploring the brilliant rock formations at ‘Brimham Rocks.’ Our children enjoyed both activities and despite being out of their comfort zone at times were able to overcome any concerns by encouraging each other and working as a team.
In the evening we did the ‘Leap of Faith’ and ‘Jacob’s Ladder ‘which were climbing experiences followed by some orienteering which was a fun way to map read while trying to find hidden clues. John, Shea and Matthew scored a fantastic 150 points!

Our children have been brilliant today and they have been complimented on by all of the Bewerley Park staff because of their excellent behaviour and their efforts in having a real go at everything they have been asked to try. Well done to all!!
***Mr and Mrs Sung please don’t panic – it wasn’t a cliff and it wasn’t a river … but it was great fun!
