Tuesday was an early morning for many of the campers because they were headed off for some crazy Canyoning action.
Campers headed up to the picturesque Chassezac gorge and put on their armour for the day – a full wetsuit, harness and helmet. Cold weather didn’t slow anyone down as hearts started pumping while campers jumped through, over and under waterfalls. A quick lunch riverside was followed by more skillful navigation down the rushing water of the gorge.
Another group of campers started the day with a session in the cave. After delving into the depths of the limestone, they emerged wet, dirty and smiling from ear to ear. The other activity group headed up to the local crag for some rock climbing. They learned how to tie figure-eight knots and belay their friends safely before climbing all over the rock face. In the afternoon the climbers came down from the heights to dive into the depths of the cave and the cavers did the opposite.
Hungry campers gobbled up a sumptuous dinner before trying out their team working skills as part of the “Supa Team Challenge”. Groups ran around camp singing, testing their memory and ability to communicate with other campers in many different languages. What a day!
