Sunday 26th Sept
Well it was a nice sunny day to the start of the September camp. The warmest day we have had in awhile. We started off with a bbq at about 1 pm for every one and then every one took turns at a ride on the harley bikes very nice indeed. As the afternoon rolled on we got every one settled into their rooms and then every one came down to the main hall to have tea. Every one was happy and eager to start camp. After tea we put on a couple of movies and just sat back and watched them.
Monday 27th Sept
Well it was a cool start to the day but the smell of clean country air was just great. We started the day with activities for the younger campers as the older campers enjoyed a sleep in. As the afternoons weather turned very cool and rainy we had to cancel the outing to the Rifle Range which was disappointing for the older boys. But we had a visit from the CFA with their fire truck which the younger ones found very exciting; especially when they turned on the long hose and squirted it all around the car park J We had a visit from Tony who drew every ones face on paper. He really did a great job and every one was more than happy with there drawings.
We had a nice tea and then settled into a night of talent show. It was a good talent show but was hard to get all the groups to participate as some of them get so shy about performing in front of others.
Tuesday 28th Sept
Well it was another cool start to the day but it’s always great to smell that fresh air. After breakfast we started with activities for those who were around. Then it was time for a scavenger hunt and in the afternoon we had a visit from Tony and he brought all his reptile animals along for us all to have a look at. Every one just loved the show and the green frog was just so cute but when he pulled out the snakes you could hear whispers of ooooooh how big are they. Later in the afternoon we had indoor games to play and then we a toilet roll paper challenge. After our tea was our big night of Trivia. It was a good night and the questions kept you guessing J
Wednesday 29th Sept
Well after breaky and our usual activities we had food olympics. Well it was so much fun to watch, people had peanut butter on there faces, some had blind folds and were tasting spreads as they were placed into their mouths. Every one seemed to have so much fun. In the afternoon we had a visit from Ben Hutton and his Magic Show. It was truly great and after he was finished he spent so much time with the younger campers showing them tricks and they really enjoyed it. Later that night we had a story teller come in and tell us a few stories. The hall looked really great with all the candles around (it was just a pity due to bad weather we couldn’t do it out side)
Thursday 30th Sept
Well today was going to be our last full day of camp. The weather was still cool but that was ok as it was party night tonight and there was heaps to do. So after breaky we started decorating the hall. We had streamers and balloons everywhere. Then we started putting all the Halloween party things around the walls. It really looked great by the time we finished. Party night is always so much fun and everyone makes a effort in dressing up. In the afternoon we had the camp photos and after that was tea, followed by every one getting ready for party night. Well the night was a great hit with every one looking good in their costumes and everyone just enjoying the music. Every one went to bed happy as it was a good night J
