Get a bunch of kids.
Let them walk over a big hill, eat outside, run a bit wild, jump in a river, toast marshmallows and sleep under the stars in their clothes.
Here is what happens:
Many thanks to all the children and teachers involved in this microadventure. Have a look at their class blog and read about the microadventure in their own words.
TWO YEARS LATER I returned to the school for another microadventure:
Two years ago, teacher Mrs Monaghan took her class on an overnight microadventure (video here: https://vimeo.com/67898756).
Now, for their "Leavers' Treat", the children asked if they could go on another microadventure. I went along again to film how they got on.
(And here you can see how they got involved with my row across the Atlantic Ocean last year).
Thank you to Alpkit for the bivvy bags and sleeping mattresses.
