Before I went on camp, I was worried about the activities we might have to do. Would they be difficult or easy? I was also scared of being away from home. I guess I was just scared of leaving home for 3 days because I have never gone on a camp before.
I was really scared when it came to doing the Burma Trail. One reason is because I hate the dark, and two, we weren’t allowed torches, and three, I HATE people scaring me. I felt nervous when my group came out. I realised it wasn’t that bad and I wanted to do it again. I worked out that we did it so that we could step out side our comfort zone and have fun, not just to scare the life out of us. I was taking a responsible risk.
I loved the flying fox. Before I did it, I felt a bit anxious to get it over with, but in the end I decided it wasn’t that bad, and I loved it because you just felt like you were flying and were free to do what you wanted.
I found archery fun. Before I did it, I didn’t feel worried at all because I have done archery before. I saw a rabbit and made up my mind that I wanted to shoot it, but I did not. I leant that to hit bullseye, you have to strive for accuracy.
Now that camp is over, I want to do it all again. Over all I LOVED it. I would recommended it to anyone at all, because all the activities were awesome. Schools should take children on camp because it allows them to step outside their comfort zones. I have learnt that camps let you use different habits of mind.
