DAY 3.....

This morning, we had a full cooked breakfast of bacon, eggs and tomatoes. We then got the coach to the sailing village  to take part in Keel Sailing’. We were so lucky to go out in these cool boats which carry eight people. Once the sails were up we went pretty fast and luckily it wasn’t raining.

In the evening, we went to the disco. We danced most of the night and the boys mostly ran around. It was so much fun.


This morning we woke up to glorious sunshine. Our first activity was Giant Swing and it was nerve wracking but fun at the same tune. There were lots of screams (of joy). After that we did Sensory Trail, where we were blind folded and had to find our way around an obstacle course with the help of our friends.

After that we had lunch, which was wraps and tortilla chips with salad. Before our afternoon activities we went down to the beach. In the sun, we threw skimmers and tried to race the waves.

This afternoon, we went on the zip wire. It was sooo fast and was really high up. The view was incredible - it was one of our favourite activities. Following the zip wire, we learnt how to shoot rifles. It was quite tricky loading and unloading the gun.

After dinner, we had a campfire. We sang songs, told jokes and riddles around the campfire and enjoyed the warmth of the fire. Luckily, we had time to play some some card games in our rooms.

DAY 1.....

When we arrived we ran into our cabins and unpacked. We were so excited. We had dinner, which was sausage and mash and then we played passport to the world. The aim was to find flags of the world around the whole site. It was quite wet but it was great fun.

This morning, we went to the Olympic sailing village, to learn how to make a raft and sail it. As a team we had to put all the metal poles together and tie strong knots to bind it together. Then we attached the barrels with another set of ropes using the 4D knot. We walked towards the water not knowing how cold it was. All the rafts floated and our instructors played various games such as ‘Around the World’. All the games involved jumping in, it was such a laugh. Afterwards we were shivering but happy. 

After lunch, we played aeroball, wall climbing, tunnel trails and finally the sensory trail and archery and fencing. Some children showed great resilience with the climbing wall.

For dinner we ate lasagne or chicken pieces and apple crumble. It was delicious. Afterwards, we played Ambush, a game which is like hide and seek, where you have to hide across the whole PGL site. We can’t wait for tomorrow.
