For an end of the year activity my class was allowed to go camping. We were right by the beach and spent lots of time down there. This is my second year doing this trip but it was just as much fun this year as it was last year!
On the morning that we were leaving there was a mad scramble to get into cars and put our gear in peoples vehicles. The trip to the camp only took 7 minutes or something like that.
Right away we went into the camp and set up our tents and beds and then got ready to head for the beach! It only took a few minutes to get down to the beach and plus the trail to the beach is covered in shade, it was a nice walk.
Down on the beach everybody spread out and did whatever they wanted. Me and Zach really wanted to play soccer. Except, we hadn’t brought the soccer balls. So Zach and I ended up walking back to the camp and grabbing 2 soccer balls so we were able to play soccer. We played pass for a little while but then lots of people started to come and play. This was probably my favourite moment. We played a very very long game. It took up most of the afternoon but it was really funny and it was fun.
But later we also had a scavenger hunt. My group sorta kinda’ bent the rules so we didn’t have to do get some of the things. So my group ended up quitting early so we were sitting in my teachers shade tent and Matthew brought a fish that he thought was “dead”. As it turns out, it really wasn’t. It flapped out of his hand and fell onto the tent. Matt tried picking it up but ended up dropping it. He then tried again, and then dropped it. And then (third times the charm) he picked it up and started to sprint towards the water. Matt knew the fish was dying so in the end he tried throwing it into the water. It made it all right but it did end up dying.
So these are my 2 favourite camp moments. You ever been to camp? What did you like about it?
