This day I overslept and missed the morning walk, but was well rested at breakfast. I made a ‘Zine’ at our craft morning and Kylie and Amy kindly made me a cool bracelet which I will keep as a memory of camp!
Next up was a workshop about checking labels and shopping as a vegan, crammed with hints and tips. You can join the Vegan Lifestyle Association for free here- http://www.veganlifestyleassoc.com/
For our lunch we had a cookery demo/workshop from Ellie Bedford who is a children’s cookery book author, the recipe was ‘Sushi Bowls’ from her How to eat a rainbow book – full of ideas to get your children eating their veggies!
Time for a game of rounders for campers who fancied it and then another great talk! ‘Dorset Vegan’ organizer of Bournemouth Vegan Festival gave us a talk about running our own vegan events. Very interesting for me; as you know I have been active in organizing both vegan outreaches and social events with BVVAR and Vegan MCR. It also jogged my mind on my plans for Northern Vegan Festival, so I messaged Victoria and Roddy when I got home! I am going to be on the Miracles Mission Stall as well as the local group stall now! Very inspirational meeting another organizer of vegan events.
Time for ‘Camp Hunger Games’ – This involved water bombs and I didn’t fancy getting wet! So off to the common room once again.
Then, following dinner… CAMPFIRE TIME. I really loved the campfires at camp; so therapeutic to watch, warming and delicious! I had never done smores on a campfire before due to gelatine filled mallows, so happy times once again, thanks Rose for helping toast them.
Probably one of my favorite evenings at camp.
