Kingswood

Welcome to the Kingswood page. Each year this page is used to chart the adventures, the bravery and the fun the children on Anson have while attending Kingswood. 

Kingswood and Kingswood Camps outdoor adventures

A taste of the inspiring, adventurous activities on offer at Kingswood education and adventure centres. Available year-round for schools and groups and open to individual 8-17 year olds during the school holidays. See a selection of activities available at Grosvenor Hall, Ashford including high ropes, zip wires, zorbing, climbing, archery and more.

Friday

 

The children were so excited in the lobby before we left that the coach driver feared he would suffer from hearing loss by the time we arrived at Kingswood. As it happened the excitement turned to singing which evolved into chatter and a peace descended on the coach. 

 

We are all safely at the centre and enjoying a tour this afternoon. Later on we'll be having some dinner and then taking part in a few gentle activities before going to bed. We need to get lots of rest before the excitement of Saturday!

It's been a lovely afternoon in the sunshine exploring the site. We are gathered around the campfire for a gentle evening of story and song and a few jokes. Everyone should sleep soundly tonight with the excitement of the first day. We hope you are all making the most of a quieter home this evening. 

Saturday

 

Good morning! Well everyone slept very well after the excitement of yesterday and it was a peaceful night. One group was up at 5.30am, and they won the prize for the 'most excited group of the day', before everyone else was even awake.

 

After a very filling breakfast the children will have a day of archery, zipwire, problem solving and obstacle courses before the challenge of Jacob's Ladder this evening. It's going to be a busy day so we'll let you know when there's a new update on the website. 

 

It's been an exhausting day and we're not done yet. We are taking part in the scrapheap challenge tonight before bed. There are lots of photos to come, but here's a selection until tomorrow. 

Sunday

 

We had a late night yesterday after our scrapheap challenge (a few pictures below), so this morning everyone was very sleepy. In fact the whole group had to be woken up at 7.15am! It shows how much energy everyone is putting in to having a good time. 

 

Today it's another sunny day at Kingswood and we're ready for some abseiling, team building, high equilibrium and mini Olympics. We're also trying to avoid the score in the England game so Mr Hudson doesn't get upset when Panama score first!
