Year 5/6 from Holbrook Primary School, Horsham, arrived at Bowles Outdoor Centre, near Tunbridge Wells on Tuesday.
All of the children are very excited and can’t wait to get on with their activities. The first challenge for the children has been making their own beds! But there are lots of other challenges to come, from skiing for the first time, to lighting their own campfire, to scaling our beautiful 135 million year old sandstone rocks.
Bowles is an educational charity, and in 2014 we celebrate our 50th anniversary. We have been providing life changing, confidence boosting residential courses to children in Kent, Sussex, Surrey and London for 50 years. Children learn so much about themselves and what they are capable of during just a few days at Bowles.
