Another day at Camp has come and gone, but it definitely was anything but dull. Here’s a little summary of what we all got up to on Monday; whoever said Monday was the worst day of the week has clearly never been to our Camp!
Let’s begin with a little weather update. We have had some very spectacular winds since Sunday night (with gusts of over 30mph!), luckily for us a few members of staff worked through the early hours of Monday morning to ensure that every tent remained secure – all while most campers remained blissfully unaware and slept soundly in their sleeping bags.
The wind settled a little during the day on Monday but still remained quite gusty; however the site remains safe and secure (as always) due to the constant vigilance and hard work from the site management team – Matt, Tim and Kieran – so a big THANK YOU to them for that.
The weather wasn’t about to stop us though and the day continued as planned with Jen and Tom’s always entertaining ‘Squads Against Staff’ entertainment gameshow during breakfast.
After breakfast we then had the first Intersquad competition, which is a sports competition between all the squads and was run by our brilliant sports team – Sophie, Lily, James and Robbie. This year it was Marvel themed and some highlights include:
Speed Scavenger Hunt
Hawkeye Target Practice – starring Isla, Paige, Naariah and Jessica who won this round.
Quiksilvers Sleeping Bag Race – with Edward and Nathan taking gold and silver in this. Good work!
14+ Hulk Ball – won by Chris (you wouldn’t like him when he’s angry!).
Ending on Iron Man – shout out to Shay for smashing this event.
Overall squad B (Birthday) were the winners, with Sadie leading her squad to victory in the first of our sport competitions. It’s still all to play for before we announce the overall super squad winners at the end of the week though!
After lunch we had a chilled afternoon where campers could either relax onsite or head into town. This was our first visit to Rhyl and I think many will be returning for the remaining town trips that we have planned.
Now it’s time for the campers to break into their age groups for the evening programs; for Juniors it’s ‘Silly Sealions’, Seniors are undertaking a ‘Heist’ and the 14+ are ‘Fast and Furious’ tonight. Let’s hope they all have a great time!
Finally, today was the first of our planned lateral flow tests for all those aged 11 and older (the second and final tests will be on Thursday) and I’m pleased report that everyone tested negative. So Camp continues as planned, which is something we’re all very happy (and more than a little relieved) about!
Roll on Tuesday!
