Sayers Croft 2020

Day 1

Monday 16th March We set off on the coach to travel to Sayers Croft. When we arrived we were told which dorm we would be in (Peaslake or Shere). After collecting our suitcases we all went to our home for the week. Once we were there we learnt how to make our bed and were allowed to unpack our clothes. We also learnt that there would be a dorm inspection every morning so we had to keep them tidy. After lunch, Shere went to do a ropes course and climbing whereas Peaslake had an orienteering activity – which meant finding our way around Sayers Croft site – and then a woods compass course.

Day 2

After a hearty breakfast we were ready for the day. Our hike up Pitch Hill was five and a half miles long, with a packed lunch on the summit. On our way, we spotted cows, horses, sheep, deer and some pheasants. We also tried out our wellies in some very deep mud and puddles! At the summit, we ate our packed lunches and admired the view, before playing team games .Once we got back to camp, we relaxed for half an hour before heading out to play in the adventure playground and football on the field.

Day 3

After a cooked breakfast, Peaslake went to the local village, then made Hazel frames and completed a challenge course. Shere made Hazel frames, completed a challenge course and then went for a walk in the woods using a compass to follow a trail. In the evening, both dorms joined together to have a disco.

Day 4

Today, both Peaslake and Shere did shelter building, a maze and blindfold trail as well as a night walk. Peaslake also did the ropes course and the climbing wall while Shere went to Cobblers Brook for a stream study.
