Treasure Hunts and Casino

This morning we had a lesson all about journalism and asking questions. We played lots of games that encouraged us to ask questions such as ’20 questions’ and ‘who am I?’. Then we brainstormed our ideas for creating our own treasure hunt for visitors to Helensburgh, the town where we are staying on camp. We had to come up with questions and challenges that would encourage people to see and experience the town.

Then we had delicious gyros for lunch and the headed into Helensburgh to research our treasure hunts. We explored what we could ask questions about, interviewed some locals and then came back to the camp to type up our finished challenges.

Next, we headed to the library where we presented our finished product to the librarian who will display the finished products for local residents and tourists to complete and learn more about the town. They were very impressed by what the campers developed. It was then time for a half-hour of free time in the town with the chance to have an ice cream in the rain or play some Pokemon Go!

After dinner, our zombie challenge was rained off so we had Casino night instead. There was competitive Jenga, Uno, Yatzee and even Roulette. At the end of the evening, Sina had the most chips and won an inflatable banana. Well done Sina!

Aurora even led some karaoke after the games had finished!

The weather forecast is looking better for tomorrow and we have lots more fun in store.
