Next up was a group from Hartlepool. As always they were offered to join in our activities. Although we had a very strong wind, we had so much fun in the kayaks, playing games and exploring around our two tidal islands. During one of our little breaks, we turned one of the staff into a seaweed monster and told stories about the drowning rock, the white lady and the Camas ghost. After the session we had a lot of fun splashing about in the water. For the Camas Challenge we played sniper behind the garden. One of the best moments was when one of the guys (he was the last one to come back) dived into the bracken after his five seconds of running.

Open Day at Camas

For Open Day we had a big bake off, making many lovely cakes. We had to restrain ourselves from eating up everything right away. Throughout the open day we had a staff cake tally, Isaac won with 14 pieces of cake (including scones). We had many guests who enjoyed seeing Camas, exploring, eating cake and taking part in climbing or kayaking. I remember one boy continuously asking if he could capsize. When he did, he was quite surprised how cold the water actually was. I quite enjoyed seeing kids and adults exploring the islands, getting to know Camas better and having a good time.
