Wet, wet, wet
Unsurprisingly, the recent expeditions have been.... wet. Here's a report from one of our short overnight expeditions, where everyone managed to stay positive despite the conditions.
After the last course, which involved a lot of very high winds, we headed out on Thursday for a short 1 night trip with the rain falling steadily. We picked up 8 young people in Sterling who were all ready and rearing to go despite how wet it was.
By the time the group had all changed into their kit, and we had walked to the campsite we were all starting to feel quite soggy, and the grassy area we had to camp on was covered in puddles. Amazingly as we set up camp, and then played some games there was absolutely no moaning about the weather and everybody was getting on really well.
The group’s fantastic attitude was maintained throughout the evening, with them almost achieving the amazing feat of finishing all the vegetables we had given them. The next morning we were greeted by a frost, but at least there was sunshine.
Again the group’s attitude shone as we finished the morning’s tasks. We then moved on to canoeing on the loch, which despite some of the group’s fears everybody participated in fully.
A change of clothes, and a good lunch then took us to the end of the course.
Well done to the whole group. The staff team were all really impressed with you attitudes, and we look forward to seeing you on a 7 day expedition sometime soon.
