It was a glorious and crisp Monday morning at Lycée International de Londres Winston Churchill. One by one our campers roll in eager to meet their fellow adventurers. After a game of “Bug BINGO” we all took up a comfy spot on the sofa (as it is a holiday after all!). “Good Morning everyone welcome to this week’s camp ~ Hiding Places ~ this week we will explore some of the wonderful ways both people and nature can provide protection and shelter in the wintry weather. We will journey into the historic Chislehurst Caves, climb up the winding staircase of the Monument Tower, construct a Recycle City and today we are going to build a den!”

After a few ‘get to know you’ drama games that got everybody relaxed and smiling, we took the short walk over to Fryent Country Park where our den builders discover how animals shelter through the winter months and learn how to build their very own shelter in the woods.

Back at base it was time to wash the forest remains off our hands and get ready to make a feast fit for hungry explorers. Today’s menu is a tasty Crostini with avocado mash, sliced cucumber, red pepper and olives with a wild lettuce Pick’n’Mix (that’s our new word for ‘salad’) feta and sweet honey and lemon dressing. There were a few ummmms and arrhhhhhs and crinkled up noses at the sight of certain ingredients, although come time to eat their very own lunch their crostini were gobbled down without a peep.

Our wonderful craft master Erica prepared a stock pile of selected household materials for the campers to build their magical city. “Think about how different buildings are made out of different materials coming in all shapes and sizes.” There was a buzz of excitement as they each put forward their designs to their group.movie The Walk

Juice time!! Everyone really enjoyed making their own fresh juice. Watching the fruit go in whole and pure bright orange and green juice come out. It is the best energy potion one can give a child after a full day of adventure.
