KING’S Ely’s annual Summer Stage Camps have taken place over the last four weekends for Year 9 Ely Scheme students.

Based out near Watton in Norfolk, the camps enable students to sample 24 hours of expedition life and learn some valuable new outdoor skills. The Year 9 teams initially completed a navigation challenge through the Norfolk countryside, before setting up their shelters and making up their temporary homes.

Assistant Director of Outdoor Education at King’s Ely Senior, Martin Bray, said: “Each student prepared their own evening meal, followed by some serious mess tin scrubbing. Once the sun had set, evening activities consisted of several glow-stick games, before students finally crept off to their shelters to bed down for the night.

“Thank you to Toby Humphry, James Jackson, Katharine Wege, Dave Kittson, Jonny Herbert, Erin McAlister, Tom Sinn and Rosie Bowyer for their assistance in running the camps. Thank you also to the pupil instructor team for their input to the camps.”
