Sunday the 20th of May we finally had our Open Day at Camas, and what a day it was!
At 10 o’clock we were all ready with cakes, tea, games and kayaks but where were the visitors? Just before 11 we really started to doubt that anyone would show up and then, walking down the track, a mum and her son. Hurray! Soon after we had more and more people coming and pretty soon we had a full centre of happy kids and parents.

During the day we offered tea and cakes in the common room which were taken outside to enjoy the lovely view and of course the sunshine. We had 4 kayak sessions throughout the day and we also brought people over to the quarry for an abseil. Both of these sessions were very much appreciated by the adventurous people.

In the art room we had a slightly calmer day making dream catchers, friendship bracelets and some rock painting. Children of all ages (2-30) seemed to enjoy this as well.

The day was, according to the poster, supposed to end around 4, but due to the amount of visitors and the lovely weather, our last visitors left us just around 5. All of a sudden the whole centre seemed very quiet and empty...

We would like to thank all of you who came down to Camas on our Open Day, so nice to meet everybody and to show you more about what we do here. Thank you all and we hope to see you again very soon!
