I’ve been away. Some of the time I’ve been on holiday with Ben and Jack in a caravan and the rest I’ve been at V&N, a 4 day residential for teenagers in Pilots.
Something struck me about both experiences… Kids like to play.
Both the holiday and the camp were low tech.
On holiday the kids spent much of their time playing in a burn (that’s a stream for those not in Scotland), riding their bikes, or running around with the other kids they met.
At camp we played games, made stuff from newspaper and balloons and tape, sang songs, danced and talked.
There is something to be said for unplugging…
