From the 15-18th August we ran the Thanet Day Camp project. This was a new location this year and we were delighted to be able to hold this project at Ursuline College, Westgate. The Headteachers of six local primary schools nominated the 26 children who participated in this project and what a happy, busy week we had!
Activities included dance, drama, arts & crafts, tie-dye, card craft, science, archery, climbing, orienteering and baking. As with the London Day Camp project, the highlight of the week was the day trip – and for this project we went to Port Lympne Animal Wildlife Park. Here the children thoroughly enjoyed the safari trip, seeing animals such as giraffes, rhino, antelope, meerkats and gorillas.
We were very grateful for the support from adult volunteers who led several of the workshops, our Youth Leader volunteers, our four student volunteers and the financial support from the Ursuline Community, the Ursuline schools, the local parish and several local businesses.
