Easter Camp Diary – Tuesday
10 April 2012 by sam
After a hearty breakfast, the morning began with a highly competitive dodgeball tournament, a game guaranteed to get even the most
bleary-eyed campers wide awake!
Our footballers spent their day doing drills and skills, improving on the basics of passing, shooting and defending. This was followed
by an intense lesson on nutrition and fitness – we feel sure they’ll put this into practice!
Those doing multi-activities spent their morning playing a variety of sports, including basket-ball and kwik-cricket. After elevenses,
this was followed by our version of ‘Dragons Den’. In pairs, the children came up with their own inventions and pitched them to the three L&E dragons.
With diagrams, scripts, and estimations on costs, profits and investments, this was hugely impressive. Particular mention must go to Isaac and Evan’s flying food and coffee maker – with answers for everything (made by highly intelligent
scientists in the Russian mountains; costs kept down by paying said highly intelligent Russian scientists £50 for three days work…), these are
particularly useful if you have two broken arms, apparently. Convinced!?
After lunch, the footballers headed back outside for some more hardcore training – with the standard English weather requiring quick
dashes into the sports hall, their fitness was really put to the test!
Meanwhile, the multi-acts kids challenged staff to a ping-pong and pool tournament. A slight discrepancy over the rules led to both sides convinced of their victory!
Dinner was followed by longball in the sports-hall – a game unique to L&E and beloved by all!
With everyone suitably worn out, it was hot choc and bed.
