Last week we were pleased to have two more groups go to the Mount Cook Adventure Centre in Derbyshire. You may remember we went there earlier in the year and such was the popularity of the last trips that we decided to arrange another two.
Once again there were loads of fabulous outward-bound activities. One of our managers, Lucy, was there with the first group and described some of the activities they did:
“An historic walk along the High Peak Trail, the amazing view across the peaks and the autumnal scenery, an evening camp fire, warmed by hot chocolate and toasted marshmallows, fossil hunting in the craggy rock, gem panning, and there was archery too. Working together we built a shelter which we nearly all fitted in!”
As the week went on there were lots more activities:
“There was land kart building – which team would work together and finish first? And who would have the nerves of steel to race it around the field?
Orienteering had us working together in teams to find giant jigsaw pieces and get them back, build the huge puzzle first – a great test of our decision-making, communication and co-operation.”
The clients really enjoyed their trip to Mount Cook. Joe, who was in group two, asked “When can we come again…I really enjoyed it when we went out walking”. Joe also enjoyed the songs round the campfire!
Summing up the trip, Lucy said:
“We really enjoyed ourselves and are already talking about the next time!”
Thank you again to all the staff at Mount Cook. We really appreciate the chance it gives our clients to experience so many new activities and the great outdoors.
