Fun Camp Day 4

Fun Camp Day 4

12 Nov 2010

 
The day started with the usual breakfast of cereal and bread. This would be our last meal at this camp and we were all grabbing the last of food we would taste at this camp. All of us were reluctant to leave camp as we all had a fun time with our instructors and friends. Since this was our last day, we did not have inspection. Hooray!


After breakfast, we proceeded to get ready for the highlight of the last day at camp- water bomb! We all loved to get wet, especially on a hot day like this.

We wore our shoes, and were briefed on the objective of the game: To see which team has the driest flag. We were then given 10 minutes to strategize and make our water bombs.

The 10 minutes swept past quickly and the game started in no time. The boys kept on ‘saboing’ our team, but we reacted quickly and threw our bombs at them. The bombs had run out very quickly and the game ended very quickly. When we assembled back in our respective sixes, we waved our flag proudly and were shocked to realize that our team had won the water bomb. We were all feeling proud of ourselves for being able to achieve such an achievement.

We were then sent back to our bunks to change and remove our bed sheets. Then we assembled back in the hall for our final meet before we said goodbye.

In the hall, our journals were returned and the 1st and 2nd teams were announced. We were shocked to know that our team had won 2nd prize. Our hard work had finally paid off! We congratulated our team mates excitedly.

Next, the videos taken by the instructors during the 4 days and 3 nights were shown. We all laughed when we saw the videos of people dancing during the games or when they were forfeited.

Finally it was time to go back home. We waved our instructors goodbye as the buses moved out of the campsite, happy memories etched in our mind forever.
