This morning we went off into the forest for an adventure.
Along the way we played some games and learned some new things about the environment.
It was great to be in a real forest and to be able to play and discover what was around us.
|Two tribes meet in the forest.|
After a break in a sunny spot with a magnificent view of the Cairngorms we played a 'camouflage' game.
|Time for a break.|
|The view from the platform was great but we still managed to hide from the instructors.|
A little further on we made some shelters from what was lying around on the forest floor.
In the afternoon it was time for skiing on the dry slope.
After getting all the kit ready we learned how to put the skis on, take them off and how to stand up if we fell over.
|Listening to Pete.|
After a while everyone was doing really well, thinking about good body position and trying to change direction on the way down.
|Nice and controlled!|
|Ellie 'high fives' with Alex after another great run.|
Well done everyone! While the experienced skiiers worked on some 360 turns and backwards skiing everyone else achieved lots of new skills.
|Of course sometimes it didn't work out quite so well!|
After an exhausting day a dip in the pool was much appreciated.
|Having a good splash!|
More to come tomorrow.
Slide shows of the dozens of photos we took today will be posted here next week.
