Cardboard Kayaks!

After a fantastic game of communication that challenged the kids to think about how they describe things. They embarked on making their cardboard kayaks,they planned a boat shape and had limited supplies with which to make a boat that would float them bothYou can see here the kids participating in an activity called colorblind. This is an adaptation on a teamwork program to help people work on their communication skills focusing on clarity of language, building on shared experiences and having a common goal. Participants have to find one piece that is missing of the 36 , identifying its shape and color while never looking at each other's pieces or their own keeping their eyes closed the whole time. They were successful!

Splitsville for us

Today kids kayak camp paddled from Converse Bay to Split Rock Point the scenery was spectacular, the waters clarity astounding, and the weather absolutely perfect. The kids had a chance to practice edging, their navigation skills by plotting the course using the chart and compass, and did some rescues.  Mostly they enjoyed the scenery warm water and amazingly cool round rocks.
