This half term we will be running one of our regular Activity Days over at the YHA Danywenallt. These have been running once a week throughout the school holidays this year and October half term is no exception. So far we’ve experienced cooking over open fires (as well as making our own fires), made a few shelters and egg launchers, tried food for free from the hedgerows and had a go at orienteering and geocaching, as well as playing some team building games, and good fun has been had by all!
By popular request we’ll be doing some cooking again this time, finding out how to bake eggs over a fire, making stick bread, and no doubt a few other bits and bobs too. Besides that, we’re going to go looking for animal tracks and, if we’re successful, make plaster casts of what we find. Plus we’ll play some favourite games and find out whether there’s still some food to be found in the hedgerow.
It’s all going to happen on Monday 27th October between 1 and 4 in the afternoon, and costs £5 per child. Children will need to wear old clothes and be prepared for any weathers, as we’ll definitely do something, whatever happens. It’s mostly for children aged 7-11, but if your child is older or younger, give us a ring and we’ll see what we can do.
We ask that parents either stay on site, or close by such that they can be contacted in case of emergency -there’s no expectation that parents take part, but they’re more than welcome! To book your child’s place, please ring 01874 676677.
