Last week I had the opportunity to run the 1st ever Outdoor Adventure camp with Juniors, and it was amazing! We had a super fun week with 16 campers and 5 staff out at Tir-na-nog, where we lived and ate most of our meals.
Some of the highlights of the week were archery and shelter building. On Wednesday night we went out to the on-site tripping site and slept in tents for the evening. Throughout the week, we ate most of our meals outdoors at Tir-na-nog, and some of them we cooked ourselves over a fire! Some of the meals we made were macaroni & cheese, chicken noodle soup, egg and bacon burritos, hot dogs, pancakes on a stick, and oatmeal.
The Outdoor Adventure group also took part in regular camp activities such as Music and Drama, Arts and Crafts, Nature, Adventure, and Watercraft. Every evening we joined the camp for a camp-wide game. Each afternoon we spent some time at the beach swimming and playing in the sand. The water was super wavy last week, which made for some awesome swimming!
The second Outdoor Adventure camp of the summer, and 1st Juniors OA camp ever, was a huge success! Look for more Outdoor Adventure camps next year!
