Simba here! Yesterday was a great start to Safari week! We had some special guests after dinner from Let’s Talk Science from Western University, we did an activity with bird beaks, we learned about insects, and we created our own insects. Then we headed over to our first campfire following snack. The campers loved the silly songs and the skit they watched! We finished the night by heading off to Vespers and Taps, and then off to bed to rest up for a jam packed day at camp!
Today at camp we started the day with pancakes, bacon and hash browns. After breakfast we had a full day of rotations: sports, pool, nature, crafts and CV. In sports today we played parachute games with Cricket. For nature we went on a walk through the forest and tried to find animals hidden in the trees using binoculars with Mars. We had a great time with Rachel Francis in CV where we made our own animals. Ducky created an awesome craft: binoculars, which are great for spotting animals while out on the safari! Today at the pool with Aqua and I we played “What time is it Mr. Lion?” and participated in zebra races! The campers participated in all sessions, so this lasted all the way until dinner, we took a break from rotations for a little while after lunch for TUCK: totally unnecessary candy for kids! Each camper got to pick their choice of a treat from the TUCK shop. After dinner we all headed to our cabins for connections, a period of time where counsellors get to run fun games for their campers! This was followed by All Camp Game where each cabin protected their eggs and tried to gather eggs from around camp for their nest. For a moment of rest, after All Camp Game we’ll all refuel with a snack and get ready for Campfire and Vespers!
