  Exciting Gorge walk today.


  Wonderful Waterfalls!


     Taking a dive into the unknown!


  Trying not to get wet!


Our final day was full of fun! Children are exhausted.

Fish, Veggie burgers and beef burgers followed by ice lollies went down a treat for dinner.

We are hoping to arrive at Waterfield Road approxiametly 12.30. School will be emailed when we reach the Forthroad Bridge and a text will be sent out to all parents.

This year has been exceptional, the children have shown tremendous team work, resilience and courage throughout the week.

Thank you to all the staff who have attended this years camp, you have all been amazing!


Final Day


Our moto this week!

Abseiling today was a difficult challenge, our first wet day made the rock slippery.

Weather cleared up for our cyclists.

Canoeing was tranquill and a little wet!

  Gorge walking ended with a swimming lesson……..for staff!!

Hot Chocolate

End of another fantastic day.


Our quote of the day, “This hot chocolate is ACTUAL amazing!!”

Well done Mr Beardon. (With Mrs Henry’s expertise guidance!)



Snowboarding, Abseiling & Fire Lighting!

Snowboarding was on the agenda today.


Concentration and trust were tested today during abseiling. The group headed off on the bikes for an hours cycle to the ‘Wee Far,’ where they stopped and had lunch, climbed and abseiled. Everyone demonstrated a growth mindset today. Sammi was incredibly supportive and encouraged her peers to keep going! Mr Beardon enjoyed his first outing on a tandem!!

Building a fire on the beach with cotton wool and vaseline after a relaxing canoe down the river Feshie. Skimming stones, lifting boulders and making a splash!!

Highlight of the day, instructor asks children, “Why do you think this island is called Otter Island?” Child, “Because squirrels live there!”  

Ready for the day ahead!

Night walk finished off a super day. Balance, co-ordination, trust and listening skills were put to the test. Maisy, Charlotte, Erin and Carmen created an excellent team ethos for their team members with Jessica drilling the team to push ahead! These girls meant business!


Great sleep had by all!! Mrs Henry had to wake a few children at 7.30am, a first in the history of camps!!!

The tooth fairy will be visiting several Buckstone houses over the weekend.

After a fabulous breakfast the children are set for another day full of adventure, fun and fresh air.


The children are demonstrating resilience, team work and co-operation during the activities and lots of personal challenges being exceeded. Mrs Ritchie conquered her fear of heights by attempting the spider web challenge. Great stuff Mrs Ritchie!!

The instructors have commented several times, how enthusiastic, polite and well behaved our children are. They are a credit to our school. Special mention went to Max for putting others before him, encouraging his peers and supporting them during yesterday’s challenges. Well done Max!
