KONTIKI 2010

Kontiki 2010

Kontiki 2010 was a fun and exciting weekend... Like every year we had an amazing and creative theme on which we based our campsite and rafts. This year’s theme is "in search of El Dorado"!  

El Dorado   (Spanish for "the golden one”) is a legend that began with the story of a South American tribal chief who covered himself with gold dust and would dive into a lake of pure mountain water. 

Imagined as a place, El Dorado became a kingdom, an empire, the city of this legendary golden king.  

The king or chief priest of the Muisca was said to be ritually covered with gold dust at a religious festival held in Lake Guatavita, near present-day Bogota Colombia.  

Kontiki has always been a very competitive event. This year ( first year ever) 1st Discovery boys put 2 Rafts on the water. One raft was a competitive raft which earned us the right to compete in Chairman’s Challenge. The other Raft was great fun and helped train our Furur Raft PLs. The Girls also for the First time ever put a raft on the water. The Girls have also been invited to Chairmans Challenge!
