The Nightingale party all arrived safely at their destination in the Brecon mountains, even if the coach journey took a little longer than expected due to the driver taking a wrong turn! On arrival the weather and the scenery were truely spectacular.
Having settled in, it was off into the countryside for the first activity of the visit ... the Nightwalk. Torches at the ready ...
Day 2 and the real fun starts here ... After a goodnight's sleep (everyone was apparently asleep by 10:15pm) the children were ready to face the day's adventures with some children hiking up Pen y Fan, a mountain in the Brecon Beacons that is a tenth the height of mount Everest! In perfect weather conditions the groups made it to the top, after taking in several breaks for snacks on the way to the top, of course!!
Day 3 - Under beautiful skies another group got the opportunity to conquer Pen Y Fan, with all the children successfully making it to the summit.
While some conquered the peak of a mountain others went on an exciting Canoe adventure ... A variety of paddling techniques were learned and the children also got the opportunity to open and close locks for canal boats. Luckily no-one capsized and everyne returned to the centre with dry clothes!
Day 4 - time for he challenge of caving, and an intrepid group of travellers return from their adventure underground!
