Traidhos October English Camp

October brought us the start of cooler weather and the joy of a new camp! We had a mix of nationalities including Japanese, Russian and Thai: a wonderful collection of different backgrounds which made an interesting but harmonious camp.

As well as improving their English through fun and interactive lessons and games, the campers also practised their skill at archery, bike riding, and nature crafts creating a Mexican “God’s Eye”. To experience rural simple life, the campers headed up to Mae Kampong, visited a hot spring and stayed overnight with a host family to learn about traditional Thai life, whilst connecting to nature. They also experienced a new camp activity- Zorbing! This involved rolling and spinning down a hill inside a giant bouncy ball. 

We ended the camp with a brilliant campfire – playing games, songs and cooking ‘stick bread’ over the fire.

The campers all valued their time spent living together, playing together as a group, sharing ideas, learning through action, and being close to nature.
