On Wednesday 22 May, all of the P5 girls went off to camp at Lendrick Muir. Here is Anne’s camp diary:
I woke up feeling very excited. WE WERE OFF TO CAMP!
First of all, we went to Wallace Monument. It was wonderful – the wind blowing in my ears, the sum shining on my face. Then we went to Castle Campbell, where I bought a toy hedgehog, a lollipop for my brother and a postcard that had a picture of Stirling Castle on it. In my dorm I had three of my best friends. After dinner, for dessert, we had Malteser cheesecake. Yummy! Zzzzzzzz……
First night diary! I was sharing a bunk bed and I was on the bottom. Today we cycled, ate marshmallows, sang campfire songs, went on a walk to Rumbling Bridge and did orienteering. My favourite was the cycling. We went on a mini obstacle course. I went on a little see-saw which was easy and a much bigger one, which was so hard that I only managed it at the end. End on a high!
With all that cycling I was tired. I’ll just close my eyes for a bit – Zzzzzzzz… Good Night!
LAST DAY OF CAMP!
Today we went to Stirling Castle. I got a rock stick for my brother, and I got a really funny picture of my friend because she got a blue rock stick, she licked it and it made her tongue blue!
Funny things that happened at camp:
- I got to poke my campmate underneath the mattress because I was on the bottom bunk!
- When we first got our dorms, we whacked each other on the head with our pillows! (sore but great fun!)
- I had a photo taken with grass all over my hair
- I didn’t know where dark chocolate bunny was, and we searched, and he was there right in front of us!
We all had a fantastic time!!
