Why I love Camp

For me, camp is a fun and cool place where I get to be with friends of all ages from all around the world. I also like camp because of all the activities like arts & crafts (my favourite!), ropes and many others. You can work at getting levels at the activities and if you participate a lot you can get awards. Last summer I enjoyed the Tripping Challenge. I got to stern a canoe for the first time ever! I also got to carry the canoe a long way with the help of some friends. That was fun too. The biggest activity at camp is BIG DAY! It’s when everyone is separated into large teams for an all-camp theme day.  We do activity challenges and cheer-offs all day. The team that wins the most challenges wins the day! The other thing I like about camp is day trips by canoe to places like Blueberry Island and High Rock. That’s where we get to cook hot dogs on a campfire and eat…you guessed it, marshmallows and s’mores! Camp meals are good too. There is a salad bar and stuff for vegetarians. Sometimes they make pizza and lasagna and garlic bread! The last thing I love about camp is the friends I make. I plan on going to camp for a long time.
