Annual pre-DP bootcamp in Nuuksio National Park.
18IB students were blessed with blue skies and balmy temperatures for the annual bootcamp in Nuuksio National Park. Never has the forest been so busy with hikers and campers but we were fortunate to be able to set up our tents at the usual site on the shores of Haukkalampi. Our six tutors did an amazing job of running all kinds of sports (frisbee-throwing to spoon races) and games (human statues to tag). Vegetarians and non-pork eaters were fed first as we cooked over an open fire and meat eaters were able to take their fill of sausages. Guitarists provided the music and everyone joined in telling stories (which got scarier towards the midnight hour). A vigorous hike, a refreshing swim and a treasure hunt rounded off the camp nicely.
