It’s been a busy July here at the RockBlok with lots of end of term activities and the start of the summer holidays.
July kick-started with CCF (Combined Cadet Force) groups from all over the country visiting our centre as part of their annual camp. Looking for a challenge on their day of outdoor adventure, they completed our tree-top high ropes course and scaled our climbing wall, with many cadets reaching the top of the overhang!
The end of the school term saw many schools participating in our adventure challenge days for some exciting learning, team building and gaining new skills outside of the classroom. Climbing, high ropes, water sports and problem solving challenges were all completed with enthusiasm, earning the students points for their teams in the hope of being the victorious winners at the end of the day.
We’ve also had plenty of birthday parties this month, with the weather holding out and the sun staying around. Plenty of smiles were seen as the birthday boys and girls reached the top of our 30ft climbing wall, as well as playing fun climbing games and, for the older children, challenging themselves with the high ropes too!
But it’s not just for the children! Taking up the opportunity to get out in the great outdoors and a welcome break to the general work routine saw corporate groups from lots of contrasting companies challenging their employees on away days here with us. They were just as eager to gain points as the students from the school groups were, and possibly even more competitive.
We’ve finished the month with more busy days and lots of groups, including the Rutland County Council Aiming High group. Despite their own personal challenges, these determined youngsters all tackled our nature quest, den building, fire lighting, cycling, climbing, high ropes and watersports with huge enthusiasm and gusto.
We’re looking forward to a (hopefully!) sunny August! Come and help us make it exciting and memorable.
