Trapeze, climbing and bushcraft projectiles!

Claire Coombe

Today we were joined by Tree and Pema from Sky High Arts who brought a mobile rig to camp and taught the group how to do aerial performance on the trapeze - it didn't take long for everyone to get the hang of it as you can see from the photos! 

While some were swinging from the trapeze, others were engaged in a bushcraft projectiles workshop making spear throwers and learning how to use them to hit the target. After a delicious lunch of homemade soup, crusty bread and Cornish cheese it was time to tackle the climbing wall. Everyone got to the top of the 6m tower and were rewarded with a view across Truro to the cathedral.  

This evening we were joined by Maisie and the pips - no, not the latest music sensation but rather some bats brought along by Sue and Chris who run a bat rescue and rehabilitation service here in central Cornwall. It was a great opportunity to see these incredible creatures up close and find out more about them. Tomorrow, on the penultimate day of camp we can look forward to silk screen printing our very own t-shirts, natural dyeing and a night under the stars in the forest.
