The first trip to the outdoor centre in the newly acquired van. The third formers set up camp, and Alan takes off Susi for some judo practice. Tucker strikes up a deal with Justin. The boys set up the girls tent on an ants nest. Cathy ignores advice to go upstairs in the derelict building, and trips up over a rotting floorboard. She is carted off to hospital, but the damaged building raises doubts that the outdoor centre may be too derelict. Jill Harcourt's handwriting is arousing suspicion in Mr Sutcliffe. Alan takes his dad on an unofficial visit to assess the outdoor centre, but Mr Hopwood catches them there. Alan's dad is more optimistic than the school council, and promises a low estimate. Susi's Judo floors Jill Harcourt, and Alan is rewarded with a kiss for his efforts, to the glee of Tucker. Written by
