AROUND 850 children enjoyed a specially set up kids camp this week, organised by Lighthouse Thame.

Temporary marques were set up on the fields of Lord Williams’s Upper School, where the children enjoyed a range of activities.

There were sports events, arts and crafts and drama classes put on throughout the week and each day culminating with one unlucky person getting gunged.

Organiser Any O’Connell said: “The kids have a great time, they seem to love it. I have spoken to some of the parents who said how much their children enjoyed it.”

Individuals had the option to take part in the week-long course or simply come for a day.

Those who stayed longer had tasks to complete in the evening, such as making a silly hat for silly hat day.

The course was organised by a collection of churches and has been running for the past four years.

At the start, 500 children took part, now more than 850 are involved.
