Morning Activities – Challenge Course and Fencing 

This morning we woke up at 6.50 to do an amazing  challenge of an obstacle course with an awe inspiring instructor his name was Dermot and he ran us through all off the challenges. Next our group went fencing and it was the best our instructor, his name was Tyler (he is so fun!) we did lots of mini-games (chaos tag, tag rugby)  we went against him in a duel and we all did great a job of parrying and en-guarding. All in all it was a great start to the trip.

Afternoon Activities – Rifle Shooting and Abseiling

When we went Abseiling this afternoon, the tower looked small however the stairs were see through so the group got more scared and when we got to the top the people would have to let go of fencing and we saw that the tower was very tall. Some people did not go down and instead used the stairs. The Rifle shooting was at targets and the rifles had lead pellets that had little recoil Dipshika, Amari, Sanskar and I scored the most. Don’t worry there were lots of safety features!

Afternoon Activities – Rifle Shooting and Abseiling

This afternoon we did abseiling and I was scared at firs but my team mates encouraged me so I had a go. Then we went rifle shooting, I had fun but it was really loud and don’t worry we wore protection. Tonight, well it was my birthday, so after dinner I had a huge surprise which was an amazing cake with my own table. It was great so I look forward to what the rest of the week will bring.
