jersey project

Once a year, a group of girls who attend activities at the Baytree Centre are selected to go on a week long residential trip to the island of Jersey. This is a fun packed but challenging week of outdoor activities, volunteering opportunities and team building tasks.

The Jersey trip did not take place in 2011, however, we are hoping to run the project again in 2012.

Jersey Project 2010

In July 2010 a group of six senior girls traveled from Brixton to the village of Gorey in Jersey. Following a tasty barbeque with some of the local residents on the first day, the girls spent the week discovering the hidden treasures of Jersey.

From crab and shrimp-hunting on the beach to exploring the Jersey war tunnels, the girls discovered the incredible history and geography of the biggest of the Channel Islands. They met local fishermen and visited a convent that caters for the elderly. They also spent hours trying to find clues in one of the most challenging mazes ever!

The girls were responsible for cooking for each other and working and living together as a team. It was a fantastic week and all those who took part had a great time.
