Holiday Club 2017 – Adventure Cruise

Join the Captain on the HMS Dunchurch!

Adventure Cruise For a week the Red team (consisting of the Speedy Surfers and the Rapids Rowers) and the Blue team (comprising the Dashing Divers and the Swift Swimmers) travelled together, crafted together, sang and played together led by the Captain of the HMS Dunchurch and his Crew.

We visited the Galapagos Islands (for wildlife filming,) Trinidad (for limbo dancing), the Bahamas (for deep sea diving), Hawaii (for hula dancing) and Barbados (for cricket), and created sea creatures and a seascape that should have featured on Blue Planet 2 (why didn't anyone invite Sir David Attenborough on the cruise?)

As teams and crew sailed the "high seas" we also learned about the "five Cs" from the Bible, teaching us that if we choose to follow Jesus, he will give us courage and be there to call on when times are tough, that he will change us into the people we were made to be, and encourage us to care for each other.
