The morning started with rain..... I was worried everyone would feel cooped up in the warehouse, but builders were excited for the opportunity to add some extra elements to their carts, create a mini golf course and a homemade board game!

Towards the end of the trail, we lost a cart to irreparable damages, and other teams got tired and started improvising ways to pull the carts.

We made it! After a drink at the water fountain, we loaded up the carts and headed back to camp anticipating our last trip to the rope swing.

Although there was no sun, it was great to swim and relax after the morning's adventure.

Most of the carts were disassembled, so materials could be reused in the future.
