A bright and beautiful sun greeted the campers early this morning as Activity three, final group to go canyoning, loaded a bus ready to experience the thrill of Chassazac Gorge. The rush of cool water was a relief as the day slowly heated the dark wet suits.
Activity groups one and two had a more casual morning as they were able to decide their own activities for their first bandana session. Arts and Crafts, Caving and Rock Climbing were chosen. Jackie led a relaxing session of Yoga and then introduced mimed music for the
The rock climbing group explored more technical climbs while learning more about the equipment and it's role.
Camp Director, Neil, and Mastermind, Lily took the third bandana group caving just under the Pont d'Arc. The group squeezed into holes no bigger than their shoulders and learned how to abseil down vertical walls and steep inclines all with only a head torch.
In the afternoon the campers played on zip lines and bridges which hang 14 meters above the ground. The sky-high courses tested the athletic ability of each camper. Vertiges' five courses provided a challenge for every ability.
French two participated in their first caving expedition this morning as French one utilized that period to practice French. In the afternoon French one and two swapped. The kids walked briskly to the cave ready to enjoy the constant cooling of the 11 degree atmosphere.The afternoon French lesson could be found in the grand hall each student escaping the heat all with a water bottle in hand.
Blue Meanies brought teams of 5 & 6 kids together. The groups sprinted all over camp seeking the hidden counsellors while two Blue Meanies chased the seekers attempting to soak them with water to handicap their team. The sun quickly descended over the scene of wet tired runners and gave way to the fresh night air.
