Anticipation was high last Friday, would the eagerly anticipated boarders camp out take place? It was sunny, it was rainy, it was cold!! But the intrepid bunch of boarders deployed all of their resilience and made it through the night in tents on the sunken lawn! The secret to autumnal camping it seems, is to keep the children warm and dry before going to bed in their tents!
The boarders spent lunchtime putting up their tents so they were all set for the evening fun! Seen here is proof positive that the boarders were outside around the fire pit roasting marshmallows! After copious amounts of camp food and hot chocolate prepared by the kitchen staff the children were sufficiently warm to sleep through the night!
