The following morning, the volunteers were raring to go and everything was set for ‘a week full of fun, love and laughter’ as the young people arrived. In addition to day trips, including a visit to Ayr, the children took part in arts and crafts (where Br Ste accidentally decorated the floor with 1000 loom bands!) and activities exploring community and the importance of building good relationships with those close to us and those in other parts of the world.
The team was glad of hospitality provided by Sr Bernie and friends, which gave them the opportunity to relax after their busy day, enjoying some fun and each other’s company.
When the week ended, the volunteers created a brilliant memento – starring in their own music video of the Friends theme. Click the image below to watch:
Here’s a last word on the first camp from VIDES: ‘A massive thank you to each and every one of our volunteers that were involved in the planning, preparation and delivery of camp this year, it was spectacular! The children loved it and the local community are already looking forward to our return in 2018.’
