I had a great time on my adventure trip to Canada. I went with two teachers and all my classmates. I missed my family at first but by the end of the holiday, I didn’t want to go home!
On my favourite day, we went on a really long walk in the mountains. We had to carry all our things in bags on our backs which was hard work but we never got bored because we all chatted the whole time. We had a rock climbing lesson just before our picnic lunch and later that afternoon we arrived at a lake where we camped for the night. Three of the others tried to fish, without success! I helped build the fire instead. The teachers and two of the older students made supper, then we sat in our blankets around the fire and sang songs and made wishes in the dark.
We decided not to sleep inside the tents, but outdoors because we wanted to look at the stars. Some of the boys made ‘bear’ noises trying to make us afraid, but we were still laughing at midnight because we were having so much fun. I’ll never forget that day.
