With a whole day worth of exploring to be done the group had to first navigate a bus and train journey to Dorking.
From there we hiked in through fields of flowers and then into forests covered in bluebells.
Dinner was cooked over fires and consisted of an optional mix of steamed vegetables and chicken. The instructors were impressed with the lovely looking meals for which the kids had selected their ingredients and made themselves.
We then embarked on a little night walk through the neighbouring woods and tried our hand at stargazing. It was a pretty cloudy night so no stars. We discussed the day over a warm cup of cocoa and marshmallows round the campfire after.
The instructors were impressed by how resilient the group was during the whole day and into the night and with pretty much everyone camping out, some for the first time the group should have lots to be proud of.
Morning broke into our camp with an almost deafening dawn chorus. Some remarks from the group could be heard mentioning how loud the music was, until it was realised it was in fact a forest full of birds waking up and filling the still morning air with song.
Breakfast of bacon, which was cooked over the fire and with that eggs, cereal, porridge and fruit. Plenty of food to fuel our days walking.
We took in in a local viewpoint overlooking some lovely scenic English countryside on the way back along with some games along the way.
