On Wednesday the whole grade 5 left the school and took the school bus to the Cheung Chau ferry pier in Central, we then took a 30 minute boat ride to Cheung Chau, when we got off the ferry we were spilt in to groups that we had decided on earlier that week, right away we met our camp leaders, Our leader took us to our camp site, it was a really long walk before we actually got there, we first thought it was going to be a very fast walk because we only saw the out side of Cheung Chau, when we actually got in to the inner part of Cheng Chau we knew it was going to be not just a long walk but a long hike.
When we arrived at the camp site we were exhausted, we were then led to a air conditioned room, our leader introduced her name then told us to change into our swimming suits that we were told to bring to camp, after we walked down to the hill (Sadly) to the beach, when we got there our group leader taught us how to tie some different kinds of knots then we were told to use the equipment provided to build a raft using bamboo, rope and 5 inner tubes. When we were done we got to test our raft by taking it to the water and trying to paddle, but in just 2 minutes our raft fell apart. The next thing we did on that day was the great race, that was where we split in to a smaller group and used a map a compass and a question sheet , we had to go around Cheung Chau to find the answers to the question sheets, but our group didn’t have enough time to find all the answers in the time given so we had to head back to camp before the other teams do but halfway there I vomited and I slowed down the whole group but after that I kept on going and we ended up third place.
On the second day of camp I was still very tired because I didn’t sleep very well that night in the cabin, we met in a small table really close to camp and waited for everyone to arrive then we had a quick breakfast and dashed of to our next activity which was Tie-Dye, Bread making and Rock climbing but we couldn’t have so much people in on activity, so we were split in to two groups, my group got to first do the Tie-Dyeing and the Bread making, The Tie-Dying was easy all you needed to do is to rinse your white shirt for the Tie-Dye activity then you need to put rubber bands on it to make the design, The bread making part was also easy because my mom also teaches me baking and mixing at home so we finished in less than 10 minutes, when the other group was done with rock climbing it was our turn, we got in our harnesses then we got in to a line to go rock climbing we each got to pick a partner to race with, I thought rock climbing was really fun.
Our next activity for that day was The cave exploring it was very exiting we got to take a sampan boat to a further place in Cheung Chau when we arrived we all walked up another hill, when we arrived our guide told us that the cave belonged to a pirate a long time ago when we went inside the cave it was pitch black and very cool so we all needed to use our flash lights, our guide said if we were lucky we would find treasure, I found a old 50 dollar cent which was from 1961 but when I searched in wikipedia the pirate had already died in 1822 so it was impossible it was his treasure.
On the next day we were all very disappointed because because it was raining so we couldn’t do what was planned and it was the last day of camp. but we were told to split up it to groups with a different color then we each were given jobs, my job was to impersonate a camp leader I chose a leader called Adam, I just had to find out what he usually says and does, when I found out I just copied what he did and then added a tattoo because he also had a tattoo it was again really fun then we were all told to go back to our rooms to clean up and make sure that we had got everything we need to go back home. When the teacher approved our rooms we were allowed to walk down the hill to the ferry pier to take the boat back home.
It was a very long ride
