The Fire was the centre piece of the camp, the kettle was crucial to my well being.
We could sit around the warm fire enjoying a warm drink. We will return to the same 'camp' for another nine sessions. Two of the more experienced members of staff set to work making a 'table'. I thought they were slightly bonkers, but came to really appreciate 'The Table' when it came to lunch prep and washing up.
The 'sink' was a bucket, set into the table. This was ingenious and very useful. The table also doubled up as a cloakroom for hanging coats and bags up. The children charged around and generally built up hearty appetites. They ate like Hobbits, snacking regularly and even the fussy eaters suddenly became far less fussy. They built two rope swings and spent some time working on a shelter.
