Daily News 17th July
All forty one campers woke and quickly readied themselves...
for a morning of activities in town and a Mini River Descent after lunch.
French one and two utilized their conversational French to play a game where the campers had to try and trade a potato for a shopkeepers goods. Activity one, two and three immersed themselves with locals interacting and perusing until lunch. The overflowing walkways and crowded squares which looped around the vendors kept
the kids on their toes as they busily explored.
After a hearty lunch the camp prepared themselves for the Mini Descent. The four kilometres of river took the VC fleet of 31 boats over four rapids. Occasionally, boat mates went missing only to be discovered in the water swimming off the heat. Session two campers continues to demonstrate extraordinary paddling skills!
The hot afternoon gave way to sun-blocking clouds which cooled the paddlers for the final leg of the journey right before dinner.
Following dinner two groups were formed. Each group had the opportunity to experience games unique to the Ardeche. Gaga ball and Kunkin. An hour of play time and the campers had to be ripped away from their new found fun. The kids quickly brushed up and surrendered to their tired bodies.
