Barton Athletic Club’s Wrestling teams’ first trip to Ormside Mill
Barton Athletic Club have been bringing lots of their boxers up to Ormside Mill over the years, but this was a first for the wrestling team.
Once settled in, the group took part an evening full team building exercises and games. It’s fair to say after a lot of laughing, the young people definitely worked better as a team and beat the adults every time!
The second day was full, all encouraging each other to complete Dufton Pike, with glorious views of the Lake District and the North Pennines. Before heading back to Ormside Mill for an afternoon of high rope activities, it only felt right to treat ourselves to lots of cake and hot drinks after the efforts put in. Both evenings were spent playing long, long games of hide and seek – there are some absolute pros hiding in all sorts of places from Barton! We finished off with a competitive archery session, whereby the end, near enough everyone was hitting bullseye each time.
What a weekend! Check out our Instagram highlights to see this trip in full. Hope to see you back next year!
