Today was the Olympics, and all campers from Reds right up to Yellows, took part. It all began with an opening ceremony for the ages, replete with chants, dances and even some mock sword fights to entertain the crowd!
After this, the Olympic Torch was lit and the tournament began. Self made flags were waved and face paint proudly shown as we paraded down to the football pitch, where the events took place. Events such as unihoc, three legged football and the tug of war proved popular. Some serious skill was shown by Mathilde and Maria in the three legged football, but they were not to be outdone by Ari’s performance at the water can relay.
After all of the excitement of the day, the closing ceremony was held and the winners were announced. After an unusual tie-breaker of a ‘moo-off’ between Norway and the UK, Norway took third, the UK took first and the winners of the Olympics were Brazil! A great and exciting day was had by all!
