|Today was a sad but very special day: last day at camp!
We all woke up to a sunny Ardeche and set off for what promised to be an amazing day! The French Magpies spent the morning preparing the menus for tonight s dinner and videotaping the camp and all the activities that one can do in it. The River Goats and Rats enjoyed the morning participating in different activities such as face painting, petanque, archery, football and Gaga-Ball. They all worked very hard to obtain points for their teams, which were the Sarcastic Moustaches, the Wolves and the Schnabels. The winning team of the morning had the advantage of choosing the best baton for the afternoon relay obstacle course.
After a delightful lunch with the obstacle course began. Consisting of such activities as canoeing, running, Frisbee, skipping and many more the teams organized themselves as to who would partake in each section of the relay. It was a very exciting and close race with the team Wolves proving victorious! All three teams crossed the finish line and were able to throw a cream pie in three different counsellor faces!
Dinner was delicious and very special. The terrace was decorated with, each table had their own menu (made by the French Magpies) and Maria made roses out of napkins for all of us. We all then jumped onto the dance floor! Everyone enjoyed the disco very much.
The evening was completed with a slide show of pictures from the last two weeks, where all the campers got to remember the best and funniest moments! Prices were given to the winners of the volleyball and football tournament, and let???s not forget, to the best female and male tents! Certificates were also given out to River Goats, Rats and French Magpies.
These last two weeks in the Ardeche have been filled with special and amazing moments that we will all cherish forever. We wish all the campers a happy summer and hope to see you all again next year!
Phrase of the day: It is not the years in your life that count; it is the life in your years.
