It was a wonderful week with all of you, and I know that everyone had fun with our games this week. We played a variety of games such as Egg Defender, a water relay, Steal-The-Apples, and trivia!
With our Foxes, we started with the Egg Defender game. The group was split into two teams: the red team and the blue team. Each team coloured their eggs and then we ventured into the woods to hide our eggs. The red team had to find the blue teams eggs and smash them and the blue team did the same to the red team. Maleah and Karson had the best hiding places!
Then, we headed to the Ski Lodge and played a water relay game. With the same teams as before, one player from each team put a glass of water on their head and ran to a bucket and dumped their water into the bucket, trying not to spill any. After, we went into the Ski lodge and played trivia. Some questions were easy, and some took the teams a little longer to figure out, but it was fun nonetheless!
For the Ravens, we started with the same game as the Foxes, Egg Defender. It was so cool to see how differently the Ravens hid their eggs versus the Foxes. With eggs high up in trees and even in rotten trees, the Ravens loved this game and definitely enjoyed this game!
Instead of competing in a water relay, the Ravens played one of our favourite Red Rock games, Steal-The-Apples! With two buckets containing thirty crab apples on opposite sides of the field, the teams had to cross the middle line and run to the other team’s bucket and grab an apple. Here’s the catch, whenever you crossed the line, the opposing team could tag you! Grace and Bella were so good at sneaking across the line and dashing to the apple-filled bucket and as the sun finished setting, we went into the Lodge and played some trivia. It was the best way to end a fantastic day.
Finally, with our Falcons, we began with Egg Defender. We knew how much fun the Foxes and Ravens had and knew that the Falcons would have just as much fun. Sophia and Amelia found the majority of the eggs for their team. Good seeking skills girls! Then, we walked back to play Steal-The-Apples. It wasn’t the Falcons first time playing this game but it was clear to me that they enjoyed just as much.
After Egg Defender and Steal-The-Apples, we went into the Ski Lodge and played trivia like the Foxes and Ravens, only with harder questions. Some of the questions were: What is Mr. Paton's wife's first name? How many sets of twins go to Red Rock? And what road are we on right now? Sophia, Kennedy, and Serena won trivia with an outstanding 95%!
In the end, it was a week full of eggs, water, apples, and trivia questions. Thank you to everyone’s kindness and respect during this week. We have an exciting final week planned for all of you!
Yours in adventure,
Sarah, Georgia, Sophie, and Mr. Paton
