Building Dens

This week, Scafell were learning all about how to create dens with tarps, ropes and pegs.  The first challenge involved making a taut ridgeline to support the tent.  We explored different ways to create anchor and tension knots; we carefully chose the locations of our tents; and then many groups used their imagination with natural materials to act as tent pegs to secure the shape and structure of a stable tent.  Well done everyone!
