Lockerbie 2021

Y6 Residential Camp Monday 27th September 2021 – Friday 1st October 2021

 

“There were a wide range of activities which allowed us to overcome our fears.” Poppy

“Lockerbie is an amazing experience and I am so happy I chose to go.” Nasser

“There are many different foods to try and they are all delicious.” Daisy

“It was great to be able to share a room with friends.” Eden

 

These are just some of the comments from the children who went on our last Y6 Lockerbie Manor residential camp in Scotland. Previous residential camps have also been very successful and thoroughly enjoyed by the children who have taken part.

The children select nineteen outdoor activities from thirty on offer which include archery, canoeing, abseiling, fencing, zip wire, camping and climbing. All of the activities are led by qualified and enthusiastic instructors. The aim of the residential camp is to build confidence and self-esteem and to encourage independence and teamwork. We take the children to Lockerbie Manor as it offers superior accommodation, a wider range of activities than activity camps in the local area and it compares very favourably in price.

The cost of the residential camp including the return cost of the bus travel, travel insurance and all activities and meals is £320. We have broken this down into more manageable instalments which are:

 

· £80.00 non-refundable deposit payable by Friday 7th May 2021

· 1st Instalment of £80.00 payable by Friday 28th May 2021

· 2nd Instalment of £80.00 payable by Wednesday 30th June 2021

· Final Instalment of £80.00 payable by Friday 30th July 2021

 

Please access the PowerPoint presentation below to see pictures of Lockerbie Manor and the activities on offer. There is also a form to fill in should you have any questions.

 

If you do decide that you’d like your child to attend please complete and return the permission form and payment of the deposit which is to be paid online using the school gateway app by Friday 7th May 2021. Alternatively, you can visit the Manor Adventure website to see examples of the range of activities, accommodation and the centre itself.

 

We really hope that all of our children in Y6 next year will be able to take advantage of this fantastic opportunity as it has proven to be an excellent start to their final year at Hotspur.
