Maggie's Camp Reflection

I felt amazingly excited and confident. We were going to Moirs Point Christian Camp. I realised that I wasn’t worried. I felt that way because I know that all of our camps are fun. I thought someone would hurt themselves. I suppose that was because someone usually does. I wasn’t really worried about anything. Well, except about forgetting something important.

One of the activities was archery. I guess I wondered what it would be like. If I remember rightly, I was a little bit worried. I don’t know why. When I reflect back on it, I guess in the end I enjoyed it very much. I suppose I liked it because it seemed to me to be quite unique and different. I learnt to take risks. I feel that if you try, you might surprise yourself.

The archery surprised me. I discovered that it was really cool once I made up my mind to do it. I decided that I wanted to do it again some time, and I will never ponder over whether to do it or not for the rest of my assumed (and hoped ) long life. I considered, and now confirm archery as a decidedly good way to spend my spare time.

The flying fox was another fun activity. I reckon it must be the longest one I have ever seen. The second time I went on it, I remember that I thought the line was too long and slow, so I went on the water slide. It was so cold that I decided to go back and wait in line after all.

Now that camp is over, I think it was a great experience, and I would certainly like to go again. Our camps are always worthwhile. I would really like to go again because I think there are some great things to learn there. I would recommend it to anyone, because Moirs Point Christian Camp has some great things to do.

  2. Maggie...I really loved reading your reflection about camp. You are right "on target" with your comments about the archery! No doubt you will recognise these kinds of feelings again when you're faced with some new and different activities to try. It's cool that you'll be able to think back to your camp and recall how much fun you had when you took a responsible risk and "gave it a go" despite your original misgivings. It's nice to think that you will look back fondly on your camp experiences for the rest of your life. That's special indeed.
