Wild wood camp out

Claire Coombe

Thursday began bright and early with some adventurers exploring how wind energy works in an eco energy workshop while others scaled the west face of the power tower on a climbing mission. After lunch the groups swapped round and then it was time to pack up and head to the woods for a Wild Wood campout and a night under the stars around the campfire. 

Following a tarp rigging demonstration it was time for adventurers to try it for themselves  and  construct their home for the night amongst the trees. A toilet was dug and a campfire circle laid, ready for the evening ahead. Spaghetti bolognese cooked over the campfire and turbo s'mores were enjoyed by all and the evening ended with an extravaganza of performances including an original song from the girls in the Ger, amazing cup rhythmn and singing from the 'Blonkies', comedy from the 'Icebergers' and much more!

Some light rain overnight tested the shelters and everyone emerged dry, a little bleary eyed but proud to have spent a night sleeping in the forest - particularly those who were a bit concerned about spiders! Leaving the woodland as we found it, we headed back to camp to pack and reveal the results of the camp nominations in an award ceremony recognising the contribution of each environmental adventurer in making our six days such a fun, memorable and rewarding experience.
