Dads and kids camp out

Graaff-Reinet Advertiser - - Voorblad -

As the sun went do­wn on T­hurs­day e­ve­ning, 1 No­vem­ber, the fi­res went up on the Pug­gy Mun­nik Field be­hind U­ni­on P­re­pa­ra­to­ry School in Graaff-rei­net.

Ea­ger P­rep­pies sho­wed their skills in pit­ching tents, buil­ding fi­res, braai­ing me­at and marsh­mal­lows and le­ar­ning the old tra­di­ti­on of ma­king ‘stok­brood’.

Mot­hers we­re vi­si­bly ab­sent, gi­ving fat­hers the op­por­tu­ni­ty to bond and ca­re for their off­spring al­o­ne.

The­re was a hap­py hum at the camp­si­te a­gainst the beau­ti­ful back­drop of the Val­ley of De­so­la­ti­on.

Af­ter an e­ar­ly ri­se and a quick cof­fee and rusk, the kids we­re all back at school, ha­ving on­ce a­gain ma­de beau­ti­ful me­mo­ries.
