Community Kids

Another year where the Community kids came to Camas. They felt at home and had a lot of fun, rediscovering the place, playing their favourite games and doing their favourite activities.

The kids also taught us some new things. One was how to weave bracelets, another how to play Irish snap - a card game all of us enjoyed.

Unfortunately we couldn't go camping at Market Bay this week because the weather didn't let us. Instead we camped on the lawn outside the Camas cottages. After a camp dinner, we had damperbread. You prepare damper bread by rolling it out. Then you take a stick, wrap the dough around one end and bake the bread in your campfire. Usually you can get sweet or salty dough. This time some of the kids and James had fun in the kitchen adding spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla to different batches of dough. To be able to recognise which one you were eating they also dyed the dough purple/red, green and blue.

And they lived happily ever after. See you next year...
