White Knuckle Climbing Experience

19th July 2012

Shooting hoops was the name of the game in the morning for White group.  So after lunch, they took a short trip down the mountain to the outdoor rock climbing wall where they met with climbing specialist activity leaders Jim and Sara. The group, fitted out with harnesses, were taught about the required knots for climbing and safety techniques required when belaying another climber. Lou lou, Theodor, Katherine, Matthew and Camille showed particular aptitude and were able to complete all four climbing terrains. Their good form continued during their abseiling descent; however Katherine, Theodore, Lou lou and Mathew were the only daring campers keen. Following dinner the children started preparations for the Saturday night talent show.
