Scillies Day 3

Good news – the phone signal on Tresco is better than St Mary’s, so the Scillies group have been able to share some photos of their week so far. The group are enjoying some of the best weather we have ever seen on a Scillies camp and are having a wonderful time. Yesterday they spent time learning different watersports and today they have taken the boat over to Tresco, where they are exploring the beautiful gardens (with the children navigating) and relaxing on the beaches.

Thursday night Scillies update

Good evening.. Apologies for the atrocious spelling earlier on today. Cabin fever has set in and the adults are on autopilot… Still in control though. Our walkers of the week are Miss Emily Blaskovics and Master Ryan Hall. They have been awe inspiring. Tresco is well and truly clean. A fantastic job on the beach. The AONB were very impressed with our manners and efforts. We are VERY proud. The children were blown away by the beauty of Tresco gardens and we are so glad that they can appreciate beauty. A cloud of doom approches over our camp as we get set to sail. Children have mixed emotions regards coming home. They obviously want to but also want to stay!!! More to follow in the morning…
