A smooth start this morning was the only way to describe the departure of the 17 coaches leaving Lim this morning. Admittedly some of the suitcases were larger than the children which did beg the question ‘is that all food or are there actually some extra pairs of socks in there? However, once loaded up with luggage and all the extra paraphernalia required for activities such as raft building and capture the flag they were ready for the off.
We set off in quick pursuit in the early afternoon and arrived at Camp Tarda the beautiful sight of the lake, the setting sun. After supper it was time for some competitive bonding in House groups. Each house had a flag to hide, a comprehensive map of the different teams’ camp areas and then set off to devise tactics and plan their assault. Some teams were more successful than others and out teachers were relentless in sticking to the rules defending their teams to the last.
The hot tea has invigorated us throughout the day and we are looking forward to the 6am staff swim in the morning….. more news as we move on to Kruklanki.
