Muir Up!

This week has been much quieter without any groups to help us with getting Camas ready. Instead the staff have been taking time to get to know Camas, and each other, better to build a great team for the season ahead.

We have had 2 visitors. The leader of the Iona Community came down to tell us about how and why Camas came to be, followed by a visit from Toby of the John Muir's Trust. Toby taught us about the John Muir Award, so groups that visit can take part in acheiving it during their stay at Camas. Here is a link if you want to know more about it -

On Friday we celebrated Darragh's birthday with an African themed fancy dress party (including costumes of the River Nile and a desert hermit!), tasty Moroccan food and Strawberry Milk Jelly. Mmm.

Next week we have our first group of the season, who are coming over from Glasgow. We're all pretty excited and we'll let you know how it goes!

Rob's "Fact" of the Week: There's a type of worm that can live inside Grasshoppers and make them jump into water. The worm then swims out so it can find a mate! Weird.
