Pringle Camp at Abernethy Ardeonaig
26th June, 2017
On the final weekend of the 2016/17 school year, a group of 14 Pringle boys from First, Second and Third Forms ventured off for the second Pringle Camp to Abernethy Ardeonaig – a stunning location overlooking Loch Tay. The forecast for the weekend was mixed but the boys’ (and staff) spirits were certainly not dampened and they held only excitement for the weekend ahead.
As it turned out, the weather was much better than had been feared by some pessimistic forecasters and the boys’ chosen activities of gorge walking and raft building went ahead. These activity choices proved wise as the group had an incredible time and shared many, many laughs whilst developing key skills such as teamwork, communication and problem solving.
The time spent at the campsite was enjoyed just as much and included giant games of (pupils) hide and (teachers) seek, cricket, Ninja and smores and chat around the campfire. The boys can be very proud of themselves for how well they worked together over the weekend and it all helped to create an atmosphere of fun and laughter which was enjoyed by all. Many boys were already talking about signing up for next year’s camp because they had so much fun.
Thank you to Mr Holliday and Mr Harkins for preparing and leading this trip.
