"We arrived at the manor and I thought that it was massive. Once we went inside it was like a very big house. It had bedrooms and a sitting room - but the sitting room was huge. I was worried I would get lost, but by the end of the first day we all knew our way around. We did team-building on the first night, I think my team won but I'm not sure."

"Our time at Kilvrough was amazing. I got to spend all my time with friends, some that I already had and some that I made there. We were encouraged to support and help each other during our activities and it really helped."
"I was worried about the food at Kilvrough. I didn't think I would like what they cooked, but I was wrong. The food was amazing. We all had to help out with the dinner serving and clearing away and I thought I would hate it but I enjoyed having a job to do. The week went so quickly that I wish I could do it all again."
