Last week was our second to last Monday with Venture Outdoors, and the trip leaders brought the students certificates and a gift - a water bottle! The ecofriendly, hard plastic water bottles were prized by all, and the students continue to use them as we have seen them everyday since they were passed out.
The trip leaders had several outdoor games planned as well, even though the weather wasn't the best. Starting off with some simple circle games, we progressed to the more complicated but still team-oriented event.
For lack of a better name, the log walk was a huge hit. The youth enjoyed racing each other and trying different combinations of teams, and once they had the hang of it they worked well together! The rain and cold did little to distract them from having fun!
