Hello again Adventurers!
Week 3 found our campers taking a long (and wet!) trip to Fortune Front Beach, fishing in the Beaver Pond, Crawling through a scary tunnel, and doing lots of activities and challenges along the way.
The morning groups started off by heading down through the forest to our Beaver Pond (some may remember this place from week one!) There our adventurers caught fish, frogs, worms, and got extra muddy!
By the time we had finished there, it was time for an early lunch at 11:30 in order to make it to Fortune Beach on time. The morning adventurers were then led crawling through a dark, small, wet, and terrifying tunnel!
Our afternoon and morning groups met at the Fortune School at about 1:00, and from there we were ready for our Jungle Run. The adventure started with a short trek through the woods which came out onto the far side of Fortune Beach, where we could see our destination in the far distance. While the hike was going to be long, that was not the hardest part. Each group had to carry/roll a yoga ball all the way across the rocks, water, and beach without popping it. Along the way we trudged through the sand, jumped around rocks, and waded through swampy water.
Our first checkpoint was at a lovely green grass hill where all the campers posed for a group photo. As we continued our long hike, we encountered lots of seals, bottles, and fun!!
By the time our 6K Jungle Run ended at Fortune Front Beach, both campers and adventure staff were ready to jump in the water and splash around to have a cool off. While at the beach, we experimented with making fires and digging trenches, courtesy of Nathan.
Overall, Week 3 was wet, sandy, muddy, and dirty, but most of all it was fun.
We are looking forward to Week 4, and can’t wait to see you there!
Yours in adventure,
Nathan, Brooklyn, Ashlyn, Carrie, Sophie and Jesse
