So when got to the main camp site, we got all our luggage and went to our cabins. I was in Cabin 21 with Angelica (a.k.a Angie), Lyanna, Aneesha and Kathleen. I slept on a bunk bed which I shared with Kathleen. I hate going on the top bunk, I like the bottom bunk better.
After we settled in, we went for lunch. In my opinion I didn’t like Lunch that day. We had Potato with any topping you like. I am not a fan of potato unless it is massed potato.
I didn’t eat much because we have most of our activities that day and we have the Giant Swing first. The Giant swing is basically a swing! Instead of pushing a person on a swing you pull a string. You have all this harness on you and it is not good to wear short denim short because then you will have a wedge. I hurts a lot. You get to choose which height you would be pulled up.
If you are going on the Giant Swing you should go right to the top because that means having a longer turn and it also means facing your fear if you’re afraid of heights because you go up really high. It is scary when the supervisor says “ 3,2,1 pull the string” because you have to pull a little string that will unleash you. Then when you unleash it you probably scream if you are a girl like me but it is alright if a boy screams because it is scary on the first and second swing but the rest, you just relax and enjoy.
After the Giant Swing we had the Interactive course. The first activity for the course was to race with the other half of your group. It wasn’t an ordinarily race but you had to step on tires that sink if you stay there too long. The interactive course is all about teamwork. My Team eventually was the first group that got all our team mates to the other side without touching the ground, if they did, they had to start again.
Next was the Balance Wires. You have to Balance on wires with 2 people to help you so you won’t have to injure yourself by falling down. Simone was the first person she did it very swiftly. She did it without anyone’s help. Other people went and then it was my turn. I guess I did a good job because I didn’t need anyone’s help and I did it swiftly and My teacher said my feet didn’t wobble at all. I was happy.
The next one I don’t really remember what happen on the next one but I remember we had to cross the log with a person from the opposite team. I wasn’t good at that but going to the next one.
We had to arrange the tires in order to smallest to biggest on one pole and we weren’t allowed to stack a big tire on a small tire. We did it spectacularly.
We had to all go on 1 wire together and work together to get to the other side without touching the ground. It was really hard but we all made it while touching the ground sadly.
I would write all the activities we did on the course but we did so much that day so I’m going to tell you about the next activity.
The next activity that we had was the Twin Flying Fox. Since this time it was a twin flying fox we got to do it with a partner. I did it with Ivy. We were chosen to go on it second. When it was our turn we had to bring with us the cord that we had to run to the other side and get buckled up. It was so fun. It feel like you are flying.
After our turn I got the job of waving the flag so that the supervisor knows we are ready. This is for everybody’s safety. After that I gave Ivy a turn doing that job. Then my teacher told me that I could help everybody else to take of the equipment.
After the flying fox we got to finish the day with a swim in the pool. It is so nice that we get to relax in the pool after that long day doing those fun activities but I guess not. It was a rush to go to the bathrooms and change into our bathers. We got our beach towels and thongs and off we went. Like I said I didn’t have a relaxing time at the pool but I did enjoy it. We did some jumps which was super fun. One side of the pool is really, really deep. I had a hard time swimming at the deep end without my goggles which I forgot to bring at camp. The only reason we didn’t have a relaxing time we played tiggy at the pool which makes you very tired.
Sadly we had to get out and then it was a rush again to the showers. I was very lucky to have a shower that day. We got change and had went straight to the hall to eat dinner but that is a different story.
