Frank Chapman Day One: Arrival
It has been a whirlwind of a first day here at Frank Chapman. We have unpacked, made beds, took part in lots of team building activities and had long walk through the expansive forest here. It’s been great to see everybody smiling and getting involved in all of the fun games, despite the bout of heavy rain! Waterproofs were definitely needed! All groups had to work together to complete challenges, such as climbing through a spider’s web, carrying a ball suspended on a chain and collecting up balls into buckets as quickly as possible. We then finished the morning by trying to complete the egg drop challenge. This meant trying to create protection around our given eggs so that they wouldn’t crack. For lunch we had sandwiches, fruit and some wonderful cake!
After our delicious dinner of fish and chips, we went for a walk through the forest, ending up at the Magic Tree. We were able to make a wish here by pushing the tree as hard as we could. It has been such a busy day and everybody is nodding off to sleep! Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post!
