Last week from Wednesday to Friday we had camp with Treasure Island. We each were groups for our activity, my group leader was called Clawdia and our teacher was Mr. Wah. We slept in tents of 2-4 people each, I was in a group of three with my best friend. We did many nature related activities, such as swimming, building our own shelter with just ropes and what we can find in the wild during a storm( there was a storm when we built it), orienteering, etc.
What did I enjoy: I enjoyed the Raft building because we got to build raft from reusable resources such as tyres, bamboo and ropes. All of these resources were passed down from group to group, so we had to destruct our rafts after we finished making and testing it. I also enjoyed our BBQ, even though i am just so scared of fire, I was close to fainting when my group mates marshmallow caught on fire when we were making S’MORES.
What did I experience for the first time: I never slept in a tent before, nor in a sleeping bag, I never acknowledge a spider’s presents on my leg before, but hey there’s a time for everything.
What will i remember the most: I will remember my camp leader, the fact that I had some kinda asthma attack situation in the middle of the night, the raft building, the survival challenge, BBQ, orientering, the surf relay, and A LOT more.
What did I find challenging: I found dealing with my group mates when we did the surf relay challenging, because when they were waiting for their turn they were mixing sand and water and throwing it around, putting it on their bodies and just being completely utterly disgusting, and it was kind of like mud. Ew!
What did I learn from my camp experience: Hong Kong’s water in the winter can as cold as the lakes in Germany in summer for reasons related to science or physics.
I REALLY ENJOYED MY CAMP EXPERIENCE!!!!
