What a beautiful morning! The skies are clear with terrific views of the valley and the distant mountain peaks. This was able to lift some of the tired spirits after a long day yesterday. We started the day in the main room to explore more Supercamp activities.
We started the day with the “Morning Boogie” led by one of our courageous campers, Trevor. After increasing our blood flow and alertness, we examined the learning strategies for Math and open our minds to think creatively. The combination of practical strategies allowed every camper to personalize and take ownership of the morning’s lesson.
After lunch, we departed on our trek to the mountain hut for an overnight stay. The afternoon was perfect for a hike with majestic vistas and plenty of good conversation along the way. We even found time to stop at a café near a lake to play some games and have a bit of ice cream.
When we arrived at the hut, campers were hungry for the BBQ that was waiting and some time to relax. We played games and shared life stories. What a wonderful setting for friends to get more acquainted. Tomorrow we are looking forward to a quick hike down so we can prepare for part 2 of rafting and canyoning. Stay tuned, the fun continues!
