Day 3

Another excellent (but rainy) day with the red team!


After a delicious breakfast, we put on our water proof clothes for an excursion out to a nearby lake to canoe. Our instructor Kev tied the canoes together and the children split into two teams to learn the ropes. We then paddled around the edge of the lake before playing some games. The children showed excellent leadership skills and had a fab time. We were so wet when we got to the shore, we all jumped in the lake for a dip!!


Once we had dried off, we had our lunch then practiced our orienteering skills around the center. They learned to read maps, co-ordinate co-operatively and search carefully for clues! Jake and Shanice were very competitive, using their new skills to find the clues.


The children have had a wonderful day, let's see what tomorrow brings!
