So, day 1 in pictures:
Getting ready to go fishing. The fish have absolutely nothing to worry about with all the splashing and hollering and out-of-water-hook time but the kids have a ball and that's the main thing, right?
Building rock (gravel?) cairns. Some of the older girls got really into this and the record was eight rocks. Rock selection is vital.
Egg and spoon races with natural obstacles- rocks, roots and hillocks and tussocks.
water balloon toss competition. This was a lot of fun. Squeally, wet fun but fun none the less.
Of course lots of other stuff happened as well but I was there as geeral camp staff rather than official photographer so that's all for day 1.
