A detailed break down of the program is below.
Echanted Camp is a week end long wide game. On the first Morning of Camp the Guilds (patrols) Dragon eggs are stolen by the evil Shadow Guild (we are lucky enought o have had 3 Junior Leaders attending the camp who filled this role for the weekend – a perfect role for them as they had a ball running around setting up bits of the wide game and causing havoc at the same time!) and the rest of the camp is spent journeying through the land to gain each Guilds Egg back.
This is a camp that if prepared well before hand will run smothely and with little hassle at the actual event. Below is the detailed break down of the program and attached are all the widegame sheets, activity sheets ets that we used. We ran this as an outdoors camp – but it could easily be run as an indoors camp or adjusted for a younger age group.
