On 12th October a group of intrepid year 5 and 6 children embarked on Arley Primary’s first visit to Skern Lodge in Appledore Devon. The aim of our visit was for the children to experience something new and adventurous. Whilst there the children took part in activities such as high ropes, assault course, pool olympics, climbing wall, night walk, surfing and river kayaking. All the children enjoyed the activities and pushed themselves beyond their comfort zone, gaining valuable experience and more confidence in their own ability. Skern Lodge itself was a great venue with super activity leaders and good food. Children and staff left on a high, if a little tired and can’t wait for our next visit.
