Over the two Field Days, the Chindits either tackle high ropes and rafting challenges at Cobb's Cross Farm or spend a day pioneering on the Quantock Hills.
At the end of the year, the Chindits enjoy a hugely popular three-night camp in the wilds of Exmoor
Overlooking a beautiful Exmoor Valley, ‘base camp’ is set up and is home for the duration. Throughout their stay, pupils get the opportunity to take part in a variety of traditional camp activities.
The ‘night fright’ is enjoyed by staff and pupils alike and always elicits screams and laughter as pupils track each other in the dark, where hidden creatures (members of staff!) lurk. The mock camp attacks, where pupils vigilantly watch their camps to avoid an enemy (staff again!) invasions are again a fun way for pupils to learn about military tactics in a fun environment.
BBQs and general enjoyment of being outdoors are the basic order of the camp. Getting muddy, building dens, making friends, and gaining confidence are all thrown in for good measure and result in memories that will no doubt last a lifetime!
