March of Dimes at Outward Bound Canada's Urban Base Camp Week 4

We're an energetic group of lovely people who are currently in the March of Dimes L.I.F.E. Program at Outward Bound, sponsored by United Way. We're learning how to improve our independence. 

Today is October 31st plus today is Halloween. Everyone dressed up as something.  

Suhail was a ghost, Allen was a wizard, Kim was a zombie, Usman was a baseball player, Jesse was a witch with a black cat, Shraddha was holding a mummy mask, and Princess was a princess of course. Rob was hunchback goblin vampire, Florencia was a gypsy pirate and Indira was a black-eyed pea (like the band). What a sight! It was very special to see everyone dressed up for Halloween. We played various Halloween Games – Zombie tag where we evolved from bats to zombies to mummies and soccer baseball with bases like Black Cauldron, Jack-o-Lantern, Ghost’s Den and Spider’s Web. It got a little competitive. For example Princess said, “I will run to any base any chance I get!” He who shall not be named kept stealing bases, Allen got hit once or twice (next time we’ll need to wear helmets - good thing it was a soft ball!) and funniest of all we were so into the game we forgot to keep score.
Action on the baseball field!

Before lunch we modeled our costumes and we looked great. See for yourself and look at the pictures.

Yesterday we played Human Taco where we had to ask each other yes or no questions to find out which taco ingredient we were and then get into an order someone would use to make a taco.

Placing our Geocache
We were so excited about Geocaching from last week that this week, we decided to make our own geocaches. So we decided to make an accessible multi-cache.
In the first cache- Sensory Deprivation- we put items to take away different senses like earplugs, a blindfold, and gloves. People who want to find our cache which we named “Fishing in the Trees” can find the first cache and choose to find the second cache without the luxury of one of their senses. In the afternoon we took the trailriders and went for a journey on the Belt Line to find the perfect spot for our geocaches. We were so far from the cafĂ© that when we realized we had to get back in time for Wheeltrans we had to rush. And we were so tired that everyone got some good sleep last night. Am I right or am I right?

So far we had fun today and our bellies are full of popcorn and chocolate. I LOVE HALLLOWEEN!!
