Provenmill at Camas = Banter Central

The second week of July brought the arrival of a youth group from Provenmill in Glasgow, who also brought a lot of energy, enthusiasm and Pepperamis! It was certainly a fantastic week for all and the staff were certainly sad to say goodbye to the epic banter, hours of table tennis and the beautifully crafted friendship bracelets.

In between all the above activities, we also made time for some climbing feats on the quarry face, leaping off the pier into the deep sea below and also an adventure to the tidal island of Erraid, where one of its beautiful beaches was treated to a top quality football match, much as Market Bay was later on that week (as well as a jellyfish fight!)

As if that wasn’t enough, the week culminated with a fiercely contested raft race which was a great exhibition of the groups engineering and knot tying skills. Then to round the week off we had a fantastic Camas Challenge celebration, with what can only be described a colossal amount of baked goods: pizzas galore, garlic bread, cheesy bread and chocolate birthday cake sensation. We then put our very well fed selves to the test with a series of hilarious games, including ‘Egg’, the object of the game being to make other people laugh by jumping up and down shouting ‘Egg’. Thank you for the food, the great new game and a week of all round fun!
