East Barnby Day 1 & Day 2

East Barnby

Day 1

Following a good journey up to East Barnby, everyone settled into their dormitories, made their beds and following lunch, headed out to the River Esk at Goathland for a beck scramble.  What fantastic fun it was, regardless of how wet everyone got!!!

Following a warm shower and tea, the evening activities involved playing games, a visit to the tuck shop and alien finding!  Everyone settled quickly and lights out went fairly well.


Day 2

Following a good sleep, and breakfast of cereal, sausages, scrambled egg and toast, the groups headed out to the River Esk again, but this time at Ruswarp to canoe to the harbour at Whitby.  After securing the boats and playing some games, they set off on their journey.  Lunch was had on a little island just beneath the bridge at Ruswarp before ending up in Whitby.


An enjoyable meal of lasagne or fish and chips followed and an evening activity of sledging on the dry ski slope, games and tuck shop rounded off another brilliant day.  Everyone was asleep well before 10pm to recharge the batteries ahead of Wednesday’s Adventure Walk through Mulgrave Woods.
