Environmental adventurers came together today from across the UK and beyond including Spain, China, Japan, Germany and Switzerland! Its wonderful to bring together young people from across the world to share this off-grid experience and learn from one another. We also had some adventurers return and reunite with friends from the previous year.
Cornwall certainly delivered with the weather - a beautiful blue sky day and a great opportunity to see the solar thermal and solar voltaic systems in action producing electricity and hot water with the power of the sun! After a tour of camp and chance to learn more about how we can live off-grid it was time to move into the structures and make themselves at home before the first harvesting and cooking crews got to work preparing a delicious dinner for everyone.
A dusk meditative walk got everyone thinking about the importance of being in the moment and connecting with nature. We learned some techniques which can help us focus on each precise moment and really experience it rather than have our minds elsewhere thinking of past events or wondering about whats to come tomorrow.
Everyone is tucked up in bed now ready for an action packed first full day of camp!
