Lots of adventure in the sun!

This morning, after some delicious croissants for breakfast we went into our language groups. Some of us were in the French pirate film-making group, some us were trying out Spanish while making pizzas and some of us were designing our own superhero comics in French!

The film-making group learned all about school subjects in French and their films are all about a crazy pirate school. They look amazing.




After lunch, we split into two groups. Some people were taking part in a survival afternoon – playing a game of ‘camouflage’, conquering the assault course, building (kind of) waterproof shelters and making bread on a campfire. The afternoon was awesome!




The others were cooling off in the lake in their kayaks, shooting bull’s eyes and climbing to the sky! They were all really brave!




This evening was lots of fun because we had our very own Masterchef. We had a blind taste test (even with snails) and campers won points to choose their cooking ingredients. They then  had to create a two course meal for some harsh judges – their teachers. Etienne’s group were the winners. Bravo!



We can’t wait for another day tomorrow. We are all exhausted! Bonne nuit!

The sunniest day ever.

We were so excited when we arrived at Lapwing Lodge this morning for our camp adventure. We started the day with a tour around the building and then we got started with lots of games. We played ninja, ‘energie’ and even had to transport a ball along pipes! It was challenging but lots of fun.




After some delicious sandwiches for lunch, we headed out for some team building. We were skiing on dry ground, had to get our whole team through the spider web and even had to flip a magic sheet while we were all on it.




Then we headed out to play capture the flag and extreme dodgeball. It was really sunny and we loved spending time outside.




We had a culture class where we had to guess if French and Spanish stereotypes were true or false. It was funny because our mentors acted them all out – do French people really smell bad? Do Spanish people sleep all the time? We had pasta for dinner and some ice cream because the weather was so good.

This evening, we played egg-streme games. We had to complete lots of silly challenges like peeling a banana with our feet, getting a Jaffa cake into our mouths without touching it and transporting a balloon with our heads.



We then won points to get equipment to protect our egg. We made parachutes and then Thomas threw our eggs off of the roof. Only one egg survived – Guayi’s group’s. The group decided to egg Thomas. Poor Thomas!



Now we are all in bed and ready for another fun-filled day tomorrow. We can’t wait! À demain. ¡Hasta mañana!
