Evening activities will occur on a daily basis. Events include the Millbury Festival, Water Olympics, Silent Discos, Talent Shows, House Song Competitions, and so much more. On Sundays and Wednesdays, each boarding house will hold a House Event with fun games, helping students to introduce themselves and get to know each other while also having some time to relax following a full-day excursion.
