An Al Fresco Summer Games "Sports Day"

With the sun shining and families eating lunch on their mobile home decking the Activity Team Leader and Kids Reps at  Chateau des Ormes campsite began setting out sacks, eggs and spoons, wellies and much more ready for an exciting Sports Day as part of the Al Fresco Summer Games activity programme.

The site was fairly quiet although three families were recruited for the Sports Day.  All the children competing already knew each other as they regularly attended the brilliant Al Fresco Kids Club available on Chateau des Ormes.

With triplets and a sister attending the games, family rivalry was intense. With smiles on their faces the three legged race, obstacle course and tug of war was completed.

Whilst the scores were being calculated we got all the parents involved with a tug of war…  It started with a rep Vs children event in which the children held their own beating the reps. We then went on to have a rep and children Vs parent tug of war.

All the Dads came out and started to take it very seriously! The the reps and children made a good start but the kids started losing their grip on the rope, falling to the ground, to which the parents took full advantage to win!

Family holiday memories were made and everyone was smiling and joking.

With scores on the board, the Summer Games medals were awarded to the “Mr Bean and Tom and Jerry” team. The children attended Kids Club that afternoon still displaying their medals proud of their achievements.

With The Cube, Summer Fete and Super Teams planned for the following week the Summer Games noticeboard was updated and children were overheard talking about next weeks events.
