Low Mill Residential

This isn’t Cadets related but I wanted to write about it anyways. On the 21st June we set off to low mill outdoor centre which is based in Askrigg, North Yorkshire. When we arrived we was greeted by one of the instructors Hugh, who gave us bedding to make our beds. The beds was quite comfy even though they was bunk beds. We had a few sandwiches for our evening meal and then we set off on a nature trail. After we came back from the nature trail we had free time just before we went bed, which is where we could watch tv, play pool or table tennis or even just on our phones. On Saturday we woke up and set of on the minibus to a disused railway bridge named Apperset Viaduct which with the help of both instructors Hugh and Stu we did a 20 foot abseil after the abseil we went to lunch. After lunch we got our wellingtons, cave suits and helmets ready to go caving at Long Churn caves, when we entered the caves there was lots of water in some places it was very deep and in some places it was really narrow but everyone enjoyed it. When we got back from caving we put our wet clothes in the dryer room and then had tea. After we had tea we set off to the archery ranges where i got good shots. In the evening we was preparing a surprise party with disco lights and music for a teacher who’s birthday it was on Sunday. The teacher really liked the party. On Sunday we woke up and got our kit for canoeing, we set of to semir waters which is the largest lake In Yorkshire. Canoeing was a bit difficult for everyone but Hugh and Stu helped us out. After canoeing we went back to the centre and received certificates. We then loaded our bags onto the coach and gave our final farewells before we set back off to school. Harper Green School would like to say a massive thanks to Low Mill Outdoor Centre and especially Stu and Hugh. If you would like to visit low mill book now on there website Here
