Windmill Hill Day 1 – the trapeze

Year Five arrived safely at the PGL camp in Windmill Hill, Sussex yesterday afternoon. They found their rooms, dropped their bags and immediately set off to find their first challenge. They found the trapeze.

The trapeze demands physical strength, bravery and determination. After being shown how to put on harnesses and helmets the children kit up and clip themselves to one of PGLs highly trained instructors. Next they begin to scale a breathtakingly high telegraph pole. At the top, standing on a small platform, they have to wrestle mind over matter to leap from the platform and grasp the trapeze suspended high above the ground and some distance from the platform.

Our brave children showed themselves more than up to the task. Check out the images below.
