I had always wondered what it would be like
to go camping. I love the outdoors but this is
one thing I've never done. So when my Boy
Scout's group planned a camping activity for the
holidays, I jumped at the chance. My mother was
reluctant at first.
Eventually, she gave her
permission. Whooppee !!!
The night before
camp, I checked my haversack. Sleeping bag,
water bottle, torchlight, compass, clothes; I
was all set !
At the campsite, my heart was
beating fast. My first camping trip ! I was put
in the same group as some of my classmates. We
played games to get to know one another better.
After lunch, we learnt some survival and hiking
skills. This was when the compass came in useful
! We also had to play games that taught us
teamwork and to learn to trust our teammates.
The night activities were just as fun. We had
night trails, ad I finally got to use my
torchlight. And at the end of the night, we had
a huge campfire. We sat around it, sang songs
and told ghost stories. This was definitely not
my last camping trip !
