An Independent Preparatory School for Girls and Boys

Night Camp Spring Term 2020


On Friday 28th February and Friday 6th March 2020 we held our annual Spring Term Night Camps for the Senior and Junior members of the school in cold and wet weather conditions, on both occasions! Mr Gibling and Mr Taylor were assisted on both camps by Mrs  Gibbons. Due to the inclement weather conditions experienced during the Spring term, we always host the Spring Term Camps indoors in the warmth of the HC Auditorium.

We followed our usual format of supper in the main school dining hall. Sausages, chips and ice cream were served for the Juniors and a change of menu of beefburgers for the Seniors. A quick briefing was then given and all kit was collected and brought back to the hall prior to being organised into tent groups for the night. Various games were organised in the main school hall for 45 minutes. The group then sat around on benches in the hall and were served cookies and hot chocolate. We listened to their terrible jokes, which is always a positive experience for the children present!

We then vacated the hall and proceeded to the HC to watch a film. On both camps the children watched Toy Story 4. Some children preferred to watch the film tucked up in the sleeping bags whilst laid in their tents, which had been erected in the auditorium.
