Day 1 - 22nd May 2017 

WOW! We have had such a fun filled first day of our PGL adventure. We have visited the Blue Reef aquarium, taken a ferry crossing to the Isle of Wight, had plenty of dinner and enjoyed Wacky Races this evening. The children all settled well into their cabins this afternoon and took in the beautiful surroundings before having a site tour and fire drill. The weather has been glorious and the children, fantastic.

We are up at 7am tomorrow for a fun packed day of activities.

Day 2 - 23rd May 2017

Today has been action packed since we got up this morning (5:30 am!). We had a hearty breakfast before starting out on Aeroball, Challenge Course, Giant Swing, Jacob’s Ladder, Archery, All Aboard and Orienteering, to name a few!  The children have had a fantastic day and have absolutely loved their activities.  They are already asking for some of them to be installed in their gardens at home! We have eaten well and all the children settled quickly this evening. Tomorrow, we will be taking the kayaks out, learning to use the quad bikes and much, much more.

Day 3 - 24th May 2017

We have had a fantastic day in the beautiful sunshine.  The children have had a lot of fun and have all  have tried new activities with great enthusiasm.  The first two groups also went kayaking this afternoon where they enjoyed learning a new skill on the water. The tide was out so they worked hard pulling the kayaks all the way to the sea.  The children have also enjoyed quad bikes, Sensory Trail, Aeroball and the current favourite activity, the Giant Swing.  We had a camp fire tonight where the children sang lots of songs and listened to stories.  The children have eaten three good meals today plus many goodies that were packed in their suitcases! They are all tucked up in bed and are asleep…..for now!  Another full on day tomorrow…

Day 4 - 25th May 2017

Day 4 has been as action packed as the three before it!  We have, once again, been so lucky with the beautiful weather.  All the groups have now been kayaking and lots of harnesses were worn today with children climbing up high towers and then confidently leaping off them too!  We have all been to the disco tonight where the children had a great time dancing, chatting or, if you are a boy, chasing each other round in circles!  The children have packed their bags tonight and then we have the fun job of stripping the beds tomorrow morning and getting ready for our departure.  All the children have eaten three good meals…and still have sweets left in their cabins, although the mountain is now more of a mole hill!  Everyone has had a fantastic day and is now tucked up in bed and asleep.
