It's a Beautiful Day TAS Gr3 Group 1

Updated: May 7

The campers arrived this morning full of smiles and excitement. We got them all settled into their tents, gave them a quick snack and shuffled them off to their first activities.

We have the following activities scheduled for today and tomorrow:

Rock Climbing: Campers can try their hand at climbing our 13 meter climbing wall or cargo net. All climbers are belayed by a counselor for safety.

Ecology: We have a variety of ecology programs for different ages. This year, we are focusing on aquatic life. Campers will have the opportunity to catch shrimp or frogs in the pools around camp.

Giant Swing: Campers get to test their metal on Camp Taiwan's legendary Giant Swing. You'll just have to wait for your kids to describe this experience to you.

Archery: A classic camp activity. We give brief instructions on safety and proper technique and then let campers try their luck. Usually, there is sufficient time for a brief competition.

Orienteering: Campers are given a map and a challenge. They have to find a series of clues to solve a puzzle.

Wide Game: Wide games involve all campers participating together. This time they will be playing a game of Survival, in which they have to either capture or escape other campers. The last person (or persons) to be captured is the winner.

The campers seemed to enjoy their first round of activities, and there was a lot of excited chatter during lunch. We had spaghetti and quesadillas, which are always a hit.

After lunch, they had two more rounds of activities and their wide game. There was a lot of running (fast walking) around and they all had a lot of fun. I suspect they will sleep well tonight. They are currently resting and showering to get ready for dinner. After dinner, we will have our campfire program, which is always one of the highlights of their time here at camp.

The weather has been perfect today, warm with a cooling breeze and just enough clouds to provide a bit of relief from the sun. Fingers crossed for tomorrow.

Here is a link to a Dropbox folder where you can view pictures of the day's activities.

Day 2: The kids are already on their way home. I am sure they have lots of stories to tell you, so I won't steal their thunder. You can see today's pictures in the Day 2 folder with the link above.

Please note that for privacy reasons, we remove the links from the blog when the next school arrives. However, if you copy the Dropbox link, you can still use that to see the pictures.
