On our first afternoon at Min-Y-Don, we had the chance to try out our mountain biking skills. We completed a skills circuit and then headed off down a trail by the estuary.
On Tuesday morning, we headed up into the high grounds of Min-Y-Don and experienced climbing and abseiling. Some of us had to overcome our fears and others had the chance to try some of the trickiest routes up the wall!
The children took part in agent training and completed Level 1!
Even Colin the Chameleon had a go!
We became mini Bear Grylls!
Our final day at Min-Y-Don!
