Girls' Brigade Camp 2015
At camp we all had a fun time; we played on the climbing frame, we sang very catchy songs we laughed and we pushed my mum off things. It was a great camp!
On the Saturday we got to know where things were. That night no one got any sleep. No one was prepared for the next day !
On the first morning squad leaders showed their squad what to do. Then we did our morning activity. We got split into two groups. I was in the group that did the 'Go Wild' aerial course in the trees first; it was extremely fun, however we all got a bit wet. We started with a practice round where Kim threw me into a tree (nearly), then we got cups of water to carry around the course...you can see how that ended. This is where I may or may not have pushed my mum off the zip line ... oops. Next was rock climbing. We had to go up and over the big boulder; Kimberly made me go the hard way . Once we had finished our activities it was time for dinner then bed.
The next day we went on a nice (long) walk to the Rural Life Centre. That day we had to go to school — a Victorian school. We got given chalk boards and pens and did some work, then got shown where you would have got caned. Millie put her hand up and got caned on the hand (not really).
The day after that it rained so we did craft in the morning, then we did pedal karts and grass sledging in the afternoon. This is where my friends (Maddie and Daisy) pushed my mum off the sledge! After this incredibly fun day we had a campfire where we learnt that my mum's pants are full of ants and that the Lord doesn't allow hairy knees!
But we couldn't have done this without our leaders and Kym! I loved camp and can't wait for next time!
Libby didn't mention that we all had a free train ride at the Rural Life Centre, with her Dad as the engine driver!
