Its Milly and Cass here, just a note to let you know how its been going at Lakeside so far.
We have been here for two months now and have already done so many new and exciting things. As instructors at the camp we have now finished our staff training and are just getting into the swing of having our own groups in. For our first month here we were just shadowing and seconding activities, but now we are signed off to lead almost all the activities so excitingly enough we are on our own.
The activities include climbing and abseiling, king swing, aerial runway, raft building, archery, orienteering, pioneering, bushcraft, canoeing, kayaking, fell walking, feild games and initiatives. So we are having a lot of fun and being kept very busy! The atmosphere here is really positive and the other staff are really nice and try to include us gappies as much as possible. Lakeside itself is absolutely beautiful, although generally very cold and wet!
