We have had a fantastic beginning to the 2017 summer camps with these 15 awesome kids.
The Hazelhut home-cooked lunch went down a treat, but the kids were far more excited about the new football pitch.....
....and cooling off in the pool!
The enormous watermelon was also a big hit.
Each of the children chose their Hazelhut stick from James.
These were for warding off wild animals, testing the water depth in rivers and toasting a sausage over a campfire however....
....boys will be boys!
It didn't take long for James to get everyone in order and then we headed off to see the Hazelhut grounds.
Later the girls did some sewing,
and the boys soon got involved in the art room too.
But which group do you think helped lay the table most? - the boys: surprise!
We are so happy to have these amazing kids with us for a whole week and can't wait to share the fun with you, but we couldn't resist ending our first blog with the obligatory first dinner picture!
