Day 3. Orienteering and the "Death Swing"

Today we went orienteering and learned some new navigation skills. First we used a scaled map to find different positions around the grounds, and next we used different natural features to orientate a map, as a start point for our directions.

At lunch time, we learned how to start a fire with a magnesium stick and striker. Then after a packed lunch, we toasted marshmallows around our camp fire. Yummmmmm.

Then it was off to the infamous,  "Death Swing." There was a few nerves ofcourse , but we were very brave  and supported and helped each other to overcome our fears - a truly fantastic team effort.

After another awesome dinner, we went and played team challenge games!

What a great day and another to come tomorrow - bring it on!
