Here at Pearce Williams we had our first Immersive night of 2018!
Immersive night is a program run out of Pearce Williams world camp. World camp includes four buildings, the Thailand stilt hut, the shanties and the Mongolian yurt. Pearce Williams is incredibly unique for having these buildings.
For Immersive night the campers are divided between the 3 areas and given supplies that would be typically found in the country of the building. The campers are then encouraged to trade food in order to make their supper for the night. However trading food is not all that happens at a Pearce Williams immersive night. Each building also has a water balloon in which represent's a baby. Whoever provides for the baby cannot leave their designated building. As well there are 3 campers who draw a misfortune which can include a "broken foot" or "malaria".
This Immersive night went incredibly well and most buildings had an appetizing supper. However there were some that ate a new meal entitled "ginger rice". All campers had a great time and many are hoping to do it again and learn more about the world around us.
