Entradas de Campamento Ávila

14 JulDay 15: Tearful goodbyes!

And just like that, camp is over for another year. The campers are all looking forward to seeing their families again but are really sad to be saying goodbye to their new friends.

It's been another fabulous summer in Gredos, and I hope you all enjoy the rest of the summer. It's been a pleasure to spend two weeks with this fantastic group of children, teachers and monitors. See you again next summer!

11 JulDay 12: Stars and Stripes

What a hot day today in San Martín de la Vega del Alberche! We've had lunch and now everyone is having a little nap before activities this afternoon. 

This morning, after campers had finished learning about space and the solar system in their individual classes, everyone came together for some group learning. 

With Ted, the students talked about star constellations. They looked at maps, and used a phone application which shows where constellations are in the sky.

10 JulDay 11: Down to the river!

Already half way through week 2! The time is flying!

There was a lot of activity in English classes today. Rochelle and Jess's classes played a variety of games related to their new vocabulary - so did Kat and Ted's classes, although they went outside to make it even more interactive!

The campers had a long list of scrambled words related to space and were racing to unscramble them. The girls and Víctor won - although they may have had a little help from me!
