Our second week and Pete took the bus out today to explore a couple of different local beaches with the group. The kids and Mums attending had a great time, I'm sure Pete did too. My boys came home with a bag half filled with shells and other treasures - love it.
Finally I have put up a list of nature walks and dates, meet us there and bring your journals etc...
Yes, camp was awesome, we had a fantastic but exhausting time. The kids were amazing with how much they got into it, everyone had a natural journal and many had started working on it already. The enthusiasm was great, so much drawing and sharing of what they had discovered and what had taken there interest. Pete as a trained teacher was particularly impressed with how engaged the kids where with what they were doing, I loved seeing them share what they had journalled and what they had seen on different adventures.
I loved how they would just start journalling together without anyone suggesting it and then how they loved showing and sharing what they had done.
We learnt a few things, in the end we had to bring 2 educators due to Parks Vic restrictions and having to get a tour operators lisense but it worked out for the best. So we ran at a loss this time round but were prepared to do so to learn what we needed to learn. So unfortunately prices will have to increase but we will have a couple more activities and another hub, a chillout/social hub for parents to catch up and kids to relax and journal, view the library of books and natural treasures we had for display at any time they want. We will also get hold of some surf boards for campers to use(under parental supervision), we will add African drumming workshop(fortunately Trav's drumming teacher/friend is an expert and has been to Africa to learn the style) and we will have a little Wildthings kit/bag for all children participating with there own binoculars, magnifying glass etc. Astronomy too - seen as the s
