6 day environmental adventure days 5 & 6

Claire Coombe

Today we awoke to the smell of bacon cooking on the campfire and after egg and bacon rolls we were ready to begin the day with climbing, t-shirt design and silk screen printing. In the afternoon we prepared our pizza dough and harvested raspberries and rhubarb from the garden to make fruit crumbles for afters. Later on that afternoon the cob oven was fired up and the group rolled their dough and topped their pizzas with their favourite toppings before bringing them over to the food garden where they went into oven and emerged minutes later, wood fired and ready to eat! Empty plates all round were testament to how delicious they were!

After some last minute rehearsals we were treated to an evening of performance - dance, drama, singing, comedy, magic.... lots of hidden talents were revealed and we were all thoroughly entertained! Marshmallows round the campfire rounded off our last full day at camp and just as the children were nodding off, the meteor shower began and CK staff and volunteers were treated to the most spectacular light show! 

On our final morning we headed deep into the woods where the group were challenged to construct shelters in teams which would be able to withstand torrential rain and wind and enable all members of the team to stay dry. Some teams stayed dry when the rain (bucket of water!) came while others got a little soggy but everyone had great fun and we were all relieved it wasn't a real survival situation and we were able to head back up the hill to camp and a delicious lunch. After lunch there was just enough time for the awards ceremony and the presentation of the wonderful handicrafts which the group had created over the course of their week at camp.
