Here are some pictures from the CD that the camp sent us...
The buses arrive - Arda was on bus no. 2.
The coaches greet the kids...
... with "high fives"
and confetti...So the kids have basketball practice 4x daily.
But they take breaks
It seems cold.
You see the kid with the orange shirt in the back? Looks like he's sleeping? Yeah, that's Arda.
They get to choose a 5th activity, and apparently, that was soccer for most of them..
"Disco" party. Arda looks really out of it. Emre looks sad. That's their room coach, Ufuk. "He's really cool." says Arda.
But they do get to watch a movie once a week, after lunch.
Itinerary for the 26 km hike. Starts far left by the tack tagged "Beyzbol Sahasi" (baseball field) and goes all the way to the right where it says "Zirve" (peak). The CD had zillions of pictures on it, and by far, the organization of the hike was what impressed me the most. They photographed the preparation of the sandwiches, the "orientation" where they apparently went over every step of the way, where they would stop, where they would eat, what they were going to see, what they needed to wear, and to bring along.
Yep, they went all the way up there, and that's not even the peak!
He looks happy!
The field day, where they had blindfolded yoghurt eating contests and other stuff that I can't figure out.
Award ceremony - I think Arda got "best sportsmanship" and "best dribble."
And here are the pictures that I took:
The buses arrive...
And here he is... My baby.
