The trip was amazing.
May 9 - May 12
So many activities in one day, I could barely remember where to start. The trip was a total of 3 nights and around 3 days (subtracting the hours we got there and the hours we got back).
First day - Day of arrival
The entire day at school was going by so slow. I'm so glad I invaded Smiley's class before I left! Bus ride was hilarious...we played cards. Prank James...
Arrival - I was so freaked of the black flies...
Tour of the Camp
We had dinner =) And, naturally, I was the hopper. It doesn't matter....our tables all helped out!!
Night Activity - Some kinda game...I don't remember the name. But we had to hit a ball and it's sorta like dodgeball.
Free time (our curfew was at 11). Amy, Shaista, James and Nolan played card games in our PJs. =) We eventually decided to go into the lounge...where James told a corny horror story. All the lights were off and Nolan decided to freak us out...He came forward and Amy flashed her camera. I gave a loud screech! James also screamed and poor Shaista was stuck in the middle. The teachers came in...and told us to quiet down. They must have guessed it came from me.
I couldn't sleep that night. I was busy being paranoid with the black flies...I thought they were going to in my ear or I'd inhale one <,<. It was also extremely hot. I'm so glad we had that fan to survive. =)
Breakfast....I was...again...the hopper...
Archery - Hahaz, first time, we had a couple of trials before we decided to stick up our own names onto the 3 targets. So, I took out..hmmm half of the edge of Laura's paper and on my last turn I also managed to take out Linton. Which I'm clearly proud of =) Afterall...he was encouraging others to take me out at the beginning <,<. Amy, on the other hand took out around 4 people O.o.
Low Ropes - It was fun for most of the part. Although, I think only Laura and Nolan was in my group. I'll admit, I don't know them very well. It was still amazing though.
Free time - during our free time, we decided to head over to Chapel Island. We initially had no idea what it was called. Our plan was to check it out at night, but decided we'll get to know the place first. It was so pretty. I eventually found my way away from the group for a slight 5 minutes to enjoy nature.
So, after...5 years since I last rock climbed... I'm still quite speedy, but I couldn't go over the overhang. <,<
Random running games - Octopus(which they called something else), some kinda rock paper scissors game (Etchy,michy,mo...something like that), somekinda circle game (hopping on each other's back. When there was eventually just 3 of us...I fell <,<
Koob (with Shaista and Nolan) - hahaz, we won our first match because Linton knock down the King! Teachers went first....knock down 2 or 3 of our blocks and then it was Linton's turn...he knock down the KING! hahaz. We didn't even go yet. Eventually we played till the final game. Sadly, Nolan got a little competitive and the Grade 9s won by a mere one point.
The nightwalk - Chapel Island, turns out we weren't allowed to go there alone. Ironic, yes? Ms. Kelly took us over to Chapel Istand. We all laid on the bedrock...starring up and admiring the beauty of Kandalore. Eventually, James and Shaista got a little nosy. I took off and went back to where Obyrne was. There...I saw my very first shooting stars.
I slept well that night...managed to ignore the grade 9 gurls.
I showered this day..and to my luck...I had a dripping shower <,<
Small Canoe activities
Big Canoe with two groups over to Ghost Island for Lunch and Games (Manhunter, chasing)
Capture the Flag - hehez, I was a great defense! They'd all call out to me if there was anything going on. Ms. Kelly was even better. I was running after Obryne...Matt ran right into me. Hahaz, I managed to spot James from a rock...but pretend like i didn't see him. He said I had hawk eyes. lolz. Also...when he finally got the flag...I bumped into him....thus lagging the time and Spencer got over the line just 2-3 secs before. =)
Swimming/Sauna - The water was so COLD! Shaista and James pulled me in.... Lucky Amy...she wasn't swimming. But I got used to it...hahaz! So...I ended up splashing them! hehez.
Camp Fire - it was amusing and random at first. But eventually the seniors pranked all of us by saying that some guy was on the loose. Oh gosh, it made it even more believable when I previously heard some kinda firework before. I managed to stay calm....but was freaking out like no tomorrow.
I slept...pretty well...except the grade 9s were incredibly noisy that day...they even decided to go over to the guys cabin. <,< *roll eyes*
Last Day - Departure
What a cold day!
Random group games
Inuit Blanket Toss - I think I went flying....it was so COLD!
Four corners with Shaista, James, Laura, Kelly and Obyrne. We all became pro after it!
Departure - I managed to take a couple of leaves and rocks for memories!
Eww...I had McDonalds O.o
Highlight of the trip
Nightwalk - Stargazing on Chapel Island
Ghost Island - Manhunter, Chasing
Capture the Flag
The scenery =)
Definitely avoid blackflies...we all got used to it by the end of the trip. I think we all inhaled/consumed dozens and dozens of flies. I counted aprox. 12-15 bites.
Never have I seen so many stars. The sky was filled with at least a thousand and especially where we were (Chapel Island)...made the atmosphere even more amazing then it even was.
Normal people go to camp and they lose weight....I go and I gain weight =)
The trip was AMAZING! Definitely coming back next year!
Thank you all my friends! You guys were incredible!
