Alton Webteam: June 2016
At camp this year we laughed, some cried, some cried with laughter, we sang, a lot threw up... however it was incredibly fun and I can say for everyone that we all came closer together.
During camp we did many activities including walking around the town and running around the beach. My personal favourite activity would have to be 'clip and climb'. This was several climbing walls where everyone was tested to the max, including some of the leaders. That day not only did we get to climb the funny looking walls but we also got to do a squad competition in bowling. My team came second.
During the whole of camp, our teams battled it out to try and get as many 'fish' in our fish tanks as possible — this was our point system. On the last evening of camp, after singing our songs, we were handed out the awards. This is where we found out that my team had won the whole competition (we finally won something). Everyone got an award (mine was 'not injured yet'. However, I then later got a carpet burn, ruining the effect...) and then we handed out the signed cards to the officers. Without them we wouldn't have been able to have this much fun!
My thanks go to all the leaders for planning everything for us and I can't wait to see what next year brings!
