428 – Summer Camp – Part 1

Johan had a big project. As a primary school teacher, he wanted his pupils to get to know each other before the start of the schoolyear. So he had in mind to organize a summer camp with his future class. But this required Amelia’s help.

–          Do you think we can manage?

–          With you for the girls and me for the boys, no problem.

7607

“Oh alright then! Why not after all? I’ll take a few days off.”

7608

–          I love you.

–          I love you too. It is good practice for me, right? Taking care of children…

7609

No later said than done. Seven children to handle for a few days in Great Bear.

7610

The beginnings were a bit shy. Twin sisters Piper and Pippa played together.

7611

Hector laughed his head off on his own on the swing.

7612

While the monitors wrote a shopping list.

7613

Soon, groups were forming. Jessica tried to gossip with Candice.

7614

But decided she was too stupid to understand.

7615

Candice turned to the other misfit of the lot: Pippa. But she was playing with a weird, creepy-looking doll.

7616

Drake and Timothy befriended each other and after playing catch for a while, they started a game of rock-paper-scissors.

7617

Which Tim won hands down.

7618

Piper had deserted her sister for Jessica’s company.

7619

As night fell, our two monitors had to start preparing dinner, with Candice and Hector in their way during the whole process.

7620

Johan had a hard time with the smoking barbecue.

7621

But finally they were fed and Johan played a few songs during an evening gathering.

7623

Ok, his guitar skills left a lot to be desired.

7622

The next day, they took the boat. Hector being his helpful self, he volunteered to row with Johan.

7624

Tim seems to enjoy himself, while Drake looks… blasé and bored, as usual.

7625

The girls’ small boat followed not far behind, with only Pippa left on the shore, being hydrophobic. There was not enough space in the boats anyway…

7626

Amelia and Piper were steering.

7627

Jessica was curious and Candice was scared. Nothing out of the ordinary.

7628

And Pippa built sandcastles on the beach.

7629

They rowed for the whole afternoon.

7630

Then had an invigorating dinner in a pub.

7631

Jessica making fun of Drake.

7632

And Drake retaliating.

7633

That night was scary stories night.

7634

On the second day, they went for a walk in the woods.

7635

“Drake, don’t go too fast.”

7636

The goal was a viewpoint and a cascade in the middle of the woods.

7637

7638

Johan lost his footing climbing the steps, which made Amelia laugh.

7639

Then they were finally all up the cliff.

7640

7641

Jessica pouted at Piper for whatever reason.

76437642

–          I think they’ll make us jump from here now.

–          What?! No, I can’t swim!

7644

–          Don’t worry, I’ll catch you so that you don’t drown.

–          But… I don’t want to jump!

7645

–          I’m kidding, stoopid. We’re not going to jump.

–          Hey, that’s not fun!
