Read the passage carefully. Then choose the correct answer.
 

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 !
