Exciting adventures in Essex

A group of grade 4 students from Hampstead and Kensington recently spent three exciting days at Gilwell Park, an activity centre on the edge of Epping Forest in Essex.

The  students and staff took part in a busy programme of team-building activities including raft building, rope climbing and hiking.  In the evenings the group gathered around a campfire to reflect on their day and share stories.

Based on the feedback from the young adventurers we’d say it was a great success!  Everyone returned to school enthusiastic about their experience and filled with a sense of achievement at their growing independence in being away from the comforts of home and tackling new challenges.
