At March 29th, we went camping! The camp site is called Treasure Island, in Pui O. We had lots of fun. Every camp group had a camp leader and our camp leader was a young man called Gerson. He is such a cool person! The first thing we did was get together and made a contract and Gerson used MY hand as the example, then we ate
The first thing we did was get together and created an agreement and signed it like a contract. Gerson traced MY hand on a paper to represent the contract, and everyone signed on it. Then we ate a snack and decided on our group name, it was “Sassy Sausages”. Later that day, we did lots of activities at the beach. The first activity was Calculator and we needed to jump on the nearest number that was there, it was about keeping on track and teamwork. The next one was Half Pipes, we needed to work together to keep the ball sliding down the pipes and getting it to a bucket. Another one was a Lilly Pad game which we needed to jump on each lily pad and not falling down, or else we would need to start again. We did lodes of other games but I wanted to keep this post short, we also needed to build our tents which were so fun!
This was how to build the tent!
First, you open the bag and keep the pipes straight. Second, you clip the pipes to the bottom of a key. Then, put the tent up and tie a ribbon at the top. PS. this wasn’t the actual steps, but I just forgot.
For dinner we had BBQ it was so good and yummy, our dinner was smores and hot dogs. At night, we did twilight games and had to get through obstacles in order to win or finish. We told stories about pirates too!
The Next day we went water rafting, we put ourselves into groups and built our rafts, I learned two knots, the box not and the reef not. then we set out to the ocean, there were lots of shells under the sea, we did a race and our team WON!!!!
Later, we did surfing and made lots of little ponds which looked soo cool!!! We did a scavenger hunt at the end of the day, we needed to find all objects that say on the piece of paper. Then at the real end of night, we had reflection time. We thought of things we could do better like teamwork and not blaming others, we also thought of things we improved on like listening. We have gone through so much and for the last day, we had to go.
I really miss my counselor, Gerson. My favorite activity is the water rafting because we won, also we had so much fun on that activity and we were all really happy. The one activity I thought was challenging was the Calculator because everyone just got together and we didn’t really get along.
That’s all for me, I hope you have a great rest of the day and I learned to be FEARLESS and to appreciate who I am and what I already have.
