Fantastic feedback from West Burton Primary School...

From Sophie
'You encouraged me so much and made me smile - I loved that you were very calm when people were anxious of what they had to do especially when you helped me to conquer my fear of being claustrophobic, you inspired me to do a lot of things I wouldn't do before I came to Marrick'

From Katy

'Thanks for helping me on stuff I got stuck on and never giving up on me'

From Harry

'I learnt so much - seeing different wildlife to normal, finding out about the history of Reeth, naming some of the stars in the night sky'

From Sophie about the high ropes

'The gladiator was really hard because it kept swinging back and forth but when I got to the top, I felt very proud of myself'

From Amy
'Thank you for setting up all the activiites - half day walk, high ropes, low ropes, orienteering and archery and for making sure we were safe and sound'

Marrick Priory in BOS news!

Heres what the children in Brompton on Swale wrote about their visit in BOS news....

'each day we faced new physical and practical challenges such as canoeing and making our beds! We had lovely three course meals for breakfast and dinner and for lunch we had to make our own sandwiches! The instructors were ace and really encouraged us  to take part and have a go'

Glad you enjoyed yourselves with us - see you again soon
