Wow! What a fantastic August we’ve had in the woods at Darwell. New faces and old, lots of focus and plenty of fun. Highlights include sneezy dragon stalking games, the hammock chill-out zone, willow craft, cleaving and sawing greenwood, lots of dens and good snacks cooked on the fire- including nut and berry flapjacks wrapped in sweet chestnut leaves and cooked on the embers. Some great teamwork, perseverance and adventurous spirits. See you next time!
