PGL Day 5

With bags packed and an early breakfast slot our time has come to an end.

Just enough time for one last photo before heading up to the coach. 

PGL Day 4

Before we knew it, the last day was upon us. Today was the end of the wait for most as they conquered the giant swing. We also had buggy builders, abseilers and fencers amongst the participants with some also taking part in Jacob's ladder and the sensory trail - a real case of the blind leading the blind.
No trip would be complete without the chance to attend the PGL disco! A wonderful end to the week and the chance to let loose with the last of our energy on the dancefloor ensured our final sleep would be a deep one.

See you tomorrow!

PGL Day 3
It is hard to think we are past the half way point of our trip already.
Another rousing breakfast gave us just the start to the day we needed before heading out across the camp for our activities. It was Walking In The Air for many with some tackling heights on all aboard, Jacob's ladder and trapeze. Others were more inspired by Wet Wet Wet as they went out on to the lake for their turn at canoeing and raft building.
A change of pace from some of the adrenaline fueled activities this evening with stories and songs around the campfire. 1 more day of activities to go and no doubt many more memories are still to be made.

PGL Day 2

Our first full day in PGL began with a filling breakfast before heading off to our first activities. Across the day, our groups enjoyed a selection of: rock climbing, orienteering, canoeing (for those who didn't get the chance to go out on the lake yesterday), Jacob's ladder (where the children had the chance to hone their teamwork to ascend the ladder of every widening rungs), trapeze (for the high flying among us), archery, buggy building and the ever popular giant swing. With 2 activies before lunch and 2 after, the children were kept busy and well occupied throughout the day. Ambush (hide and seek: team addition) was a welcome end to the day and we can only hope that tomorrow brings the same excitement that today has.


Day 2

PGL Day 1

​​​​​​After what has seemed like an age for some, the wait was finally over and we were on our way to PGL! 

On arrival the first order of the day was lunch! After having our fill, our groups went their separate ways with some awesome abseilers, persevering problem solvers, super sensory trailers, fearless fencers and confident canoers. 

The children threw themselves into it and many pushed themselves beyond what they thought they were capable of. 

A great first day and we hope that the energy and enthusiasm will continue through the rest of the week.
