8DPE Outward Bound in Aberdovey!

if anyone still doesn’t have a “Crew” about why we started our Y8 in south Snowdonia, Wales, then please do check out the video and the photos below! Our C24 students were asked to consider “what do you want to change about yourself (in Y8) and how have you started?

Eleanor’s Aberdovey blog:

Tues 28th – said goodbye to parents, 2 1/2 hours, break, got there and went for a jog and dip

Weds 29th – gorge walk, slides, cabin

Thurs 30th – wake-up in log cabin, 6km hike, de-grunge, solo time

Fri 31st – pack bag, Challenge Wall, lunch and departure


Gorge-scrambling involved a wet-suit, neoprene socks, wet-jacket, buoyancy aid and helmet protection worn against knocks and bumps, rocks and stones – great fun!

Now that our Crew have presented and received their OB Course certificates, with a rationale as to why they deserve them, they will make pledges that answer the guiding question.
