It was great to see so many familiar faces return to camp today for the five day environmental adventure 2017. After a refresh on the off-grid systems we employ here at camp it was time to move into the tents and move in they did! Some seasoned campers had even brought along fairy lights and inflatable sofas!
After settling in it was time to tackle the marshmallow and spaghetti tower challenge to get us all thinking about team work and chatting to our fellow campers before making our way to the archery range with Charlie for the afternoon.
A harvesting team headed off to the food garden and came back laden with lots of delicious home grown produce including tomatoes, lettuce, edible flowers, carrots, beetroot and chives. These were whipped up into delicious salad and coleslaw to accompany the homemade burgers which the cooking crew made. We dined alfresco in the sunshine before greeting out guests for the evening - a falconer and her birds of prey - Spike the Goshawk and Rocky the Barn Owl which some children were chosen at random to have fly to their outstretched arm!
As dusk fell we headed out on a woodland walk.
