This week we wanted to finish up our Camping Keeper with style.
Instead of a boring old "water safety" lecture to the girls, we decided to go to the pool!
We're very lucky in our town, that there is a pool to begin with! Along with the larger pool, there is also a hot tub and a training pool. The training pool goes from .6 meters to .9 meters, so it's great for all those non-swimmers in your unit. We spent about 20 minutes getting some brief pool and lake safety from a lifeguard. Then we got the pool's small training canoe out and the girls paddled that around the pool in pairs. Then we just let them go a little nuts and pay around for a half hour.
We stopped them twice from free playing to break up the time a bit with some actual games. We tossed a ball around a circle, as well as playing "what time is it Ms. Shark?"
The girls had a great time! Next week we're working on our WAGGGS 5 regions Challenge - Africa Region. Should be a blast! We're studying Kenya!
