Activity One today was a simulation game about refugees hosted by the loonies. The families (from last nights Thanksgiving dinner) were asked to pack their bags and went on a long walk around Rosthern, following the walk there was a boat simulation where the families had to sit on the floor in a small room. We’ve discussed a lot about refugees, racism and displacement this camp. We all feel grateful for our circumstances and have a better compassion for those people who live the life of a refugee.
In the afternoon we took some time to reflect on the theme Against the Flow, we looked at all the activities we’ve done over the days and categorized them into Ice Breakers, Team Building, Trust Activities, and Simulation games. We had a well rounded camp with many different topics being discussed. We focused a lot of immigration and racism but also on other things like disabilities, mental health, gender diversity, caring for the elderly etc.
Today is Finn’s 15th Birthday! When Cara asked him what his favorite colour was for the cupcakes he said PINK! great choice.
Activity 3 was a letter writing activity, each delegate got an envelope and got to write a note to all the campers. 50 campers x 50 notes.. 2500 notes.. that’s a ton.
We needed a note writing break, chicken dance party with Patrick was perfect.
