Senior Camp: Enjoying the Beauty of Nature

This year’s Senior Camp was filled with activity, friendship, and plenty of time spent outdoors in the natural beauty of South Wales’s Gower Peninsula with its stunning beaches, as well as the peaks and waterfalls of Brecon Beacons. 

The campers experienced the good fortune of ideal weather, and there was never a dull moment, with days that were filled with archery, rock climbing, hiking, games on the beach, surfing, and walking among the beaches, gorges and waterfalls. The Year 9s and Year 10s completed their DofE hexpeditions, a challenging feat whose reward was a simple but very real sense of achievement. Evenings were spent enjoying the fantastic evening meals prepared by Mr Campbell and team, along with a campfire on the last evening before the pupils started getting settled in their tents. On the drive home, the group stopped to tour the underground mines at The Big Pit National Coal Mining Museum, providing one more stimulating experience before the campers returned home, tired and happy.

We are so grateful for the efforts of Mr Appleyard, Mrs Atkinson, Mr Bayley, Mr Bell, Mr Burden, Mr Campbell, Mr Fletcher, Mr Hulett, Mrs Lowe, Miss Pearce-Higgins, Mr Nicholson, Mr Pitcher, Mr Scott, and Mr Tunnicliffe to create such a memorable experience.
