Our last day of 2016 summer camp finally arrived......
.....it was hard to say 'goodbye' to this lovely team of Hazelhutters, but we put on our best smiles and headed into Ronciglione.
The girls were looking forward to spending their pocket money......
....spend, spend, spend!
As always, Marilena had prepared us a delicious lunch! Then we headed back to the Hazelhut under the hot sun.
There was time for one more activity - karaoke - before the parents arrived...
Summer 2016 has been a wonderful time for the Hazelhut and we want to thank all the families who sent us their children and who helped us make such happy memories. We will be running more events from now until Christmas, so please keep your eyes on the website. Buon rientro a tutti!
Our Hazelhutters are down to only 5 girls now, but their spirits remained high as we headed off to XXX Miglia for a morning of fishing!
After a brief introduction to tackle and bait, the girls headed out.
This was the first catch of the day, but it was a long wait until the next....
At last it came!
This girl was the best fisherwoman of the day: 5 in total!
Sadly 2 girls left without even getting a nibble..... but we were very grateful to Alfeo for letting us have the lake to ourselves!
Back at the Hazelhut we had a delicious lunch. Once we had digested it the children headed to the pool for a dip.
Despite it being a little chilly, the girls had fun!
All too soon it was time for the day girls to leave, so the others made labels for their apple and thyme jelly.
They also got creative in the art room!
We didn't have time to make our pizza dough this morning, so we ended up having a sausage sizzle instead!
We will miss our smallest group of Hazelhutters when they go, but we have had a lovely last evening together......
