At Tregoyd i played a lot of football. The best activity was canoeing. I also enjoyed jacobs ladder, abseiling and rock climbing. The disco was fun and so was the campfire where we had toasted marshmellows. I almost landed a back flip while catching a tennis ball, but i didn’t quite land it! Tregoyd was great fun. I had an awesome time. I wish i could go again.
My favourite activity was Jacob’s Ladder because it was really high and exciting. The disco was very fun and we danced all night. The next night was spent around a blazing campfire singing songs and eating marshmallows. The other activities I took part in included zip wire, archery, canoeing, quad biking, abseiling rock climbing, mud challenge, & survivor. i hope that I get a chance to visit another PGL site because Tregoyd was spectacular.
On the 19th of SeptemberÂ we set off on are long coach journey to Tregoyd, after about 2 hours we stopped off at the Big Pit and looked around in an old mineshaft where peopleÂ our age used to work in the mine. We kept on looking round at the stables thatÂ they used to keep in the mineshafts. A little while later we went into a hall where we ateÂ our lunch. Soon after we looked around in an old mining museum where weÂ saw some of the old equipment like pickaxes that the miners would have used and after that we carried onÂ our trip to Tregoyd in the coach. When we finally got to Tregoyd we met the staff there played some games with them,went to are rooms, unpacked and went to bed. The next few days my group andÂ I went canoing (i fell in), did the zip wire, Â jacobs ladder, archery, survival, absailing,Â climbing, quadbiking, the mud challenge/challenge course, and I thinkÂ there may have been another one but i can’t remember it. After we hadÂ finished are activitys and had lunch we set of for FB. The way back was boring and i was asleep for most of it but when we got back I went home and my pet hamster died. THE END.
Tregoyd was amazing, my best part of it was the one and only Jacob’s Ladder which was so AWESOME! Because you had to try your best to climb twenty feet i think, so lets get settled shall we? so first of the first step was a meter and got taller everyone step and was a partner with Jamie and because he’s quite small I had to give him a knee up each time so i felt like he was going to fall on me and then a will fall of. Luckily we had thing called a harness on so we couldn’t fall of but it gave me a spectacular wedge that was sooooooo pain fall. and the worst part was when the steps got bigger so i had to act like a monkey or something and leap onto it. Once we got to the top we had to abseil down and i ended doing the splits by accident. Finally the pain came to the end and Â the Supreme wedge machine had came to a complete stop…
Once the bus arrived I said my farewell to Tregoyd and hope ill see it again after the treacherous journey back home had ended i could get out of that slow coach and so good bye for the day
TOTALLY WOULD GO BACK TO TREGOYD AGAIN!!!! =)
At Tregoyd I had a lot of fun doing activities – most of them involved team work. I met Ben and Shane who were our guides. Ben and Shane tought us a lot of funny songs. My favourite activity was Jacob’s ladder, because I managed to get to the top with Max. That made me super proud of us! I found it chalenging on the quad bikes, but finally I got the hang of it. I will never forget Tregoyd as it is one of the best experiences I’ve had.
I had a fabulousÂ time at Tregoyd. We did abseiling, quad biking,Â mud challenge and a whole lot more. The best day in myÂ opinion wasÂ Sunday 21st ofÂ September because we did canoeing in the morning and when the instructor said “fruit salad!” almost every one fell in it was Freezing!!!Â After that mayhem we did the mud challenge but it wasn’t as muddy as I thought. AfterÂ we washed we went climbing I got half way which was more than I expected. After that marvellous day we went to sleep. 😀
At Tregoyd, I smashed my toe under a door! I went straight to a Welsh A&E hospital where I had to wait for 3 hours before I could go back. Unfortunately, I couldnâ€™t take part in any of the activities because I was told to keep my toe clean and dry. However, I did get to throw water at peopleâ€™s faces during the mud challenge â€“ that was definitely my favourite moment! The thing I was most upset about missing was the canoeing – that looked like it was very enjoyable. I hope to try it one day.
The only other activity I could do was Survival â€“ I got to do it twice and we build two very snazzy dens. The disco was awesome; I couldnâ€™t do much dancing but I built Jenga towers in the window sill.
On the last night, we had the bonfire; we sang songs like â€˜Bananaâ€™ and â€˜My Little Red Wagonâ€™ and then ate marshmallows.
That was my trip at Tregoyd.
I was really excited to go toÂ tregoyd I couldn’t believe I was acutely going the thing I enjoyed most was zip wire and the mud challenge I was sad to leave because I wanted to stay for ever because ever morning I couldn’t wait to find out what I was doing ever activityÂ go on because I thought that’s the only opportunity I will have to do it I enjoyed all the activity’s I did like working all together in a group all the PGL staff were really helpful and they were all really fun to be around if I had the opportunityÂ to go again I defiantly would go again.
My favourite activities were the zipwire and I liked the disco it was really fun and the people I met were helpful. i was scared to do the zipwire because I have a fear of heights but I did it anyway and I totally do not regret doing it. I also liked all the songs that we sung by the campfire e.g the banana song ,the little red wagon and the pirate song. The food was tasty ,especially the lunches I can still taste the luscious hot dog in my mouth now. The big pit was awesome because I got to annoy everyone by flashing the light in their eyes.I enjoyed every second and I totally want to go back.
