14:30 - all students settled down well last night and despite a damp start we have all had a great day honing our canoeing skills and facing our fears on The Gladiator high ropes and the power fan - resilience is the word of the day!  Looking forward to some hearty grub and a sing-song around the campfire. Tomorrow we'll be caving and having a go at archery before heading home.
