Grade 5 Camp

What a great time we had at grade 5 camp! Everyone should be well-recovered by now. From zip lining to meditating, we had a great time. Our cabins were nestled in the woods, surrounded by owls that hooted and frogs that sang. There was frisbee golf, plenty of places to play, good food and a warm bath at night. One night we had a campfire with skits and s’mores. One day we went zip lining high in the tree canopy and then dipped our feet in cool water. Another day we meditated with Zen Buddhist monks, practiced calligraphy and ate a monk’s lunch. There was tea picking and fish cake making and a lot of time to be with friends.

  1. How beautiful end for the beautiful school year. I’m sure this is a camp that students will never forget. Thank you for sharing these great photos and atmosphere of the journey with us too!

  2. My favorite part was the zip line because it was exiting and fun. For next year I would like cabins that are easier to get to.

  3. My favorite part about camp was Zip Line because that was the first time to do zip line.
    For next years grade 5 camp, I would change the camp fire because we did only the skit and Marshmallow.

  4. The best part of camp was the zip line because it was very exciting.
    For next years 5 graders I think we should change the temple lunch.

  5. My favourite activity were the zip line and the walk in the river. I liked the zip line because it was my first time doing it. I liked the river because I got completely wet from head to toe. What a few of the cabins did, althought this was not an organized activity some people played tousouchu. Camp was AWESOME!!!!

  6. My favorite part of camp was the zip lining because it was a lot of fun and you don’t get to do something like that very often. For next years camp it would be nice to have the cabins and bathrooms closer and easier to get to.

  7. I liked the zip line because it was fun and cool how you an stop it by yourself. At first I was scared but at the end I felt really good and wanted to do it again. Next time maybe not have the cabins high up because we have to go up a lot of stairs.

  8. My favourite thing was zip line and camp fire.
    The reason for the camp fire is it was fun to see other peoples skit.
    I want the toilet more near to the cabin because when I went to the toilet I got lost. I want to ride the zip line again.

  9. I liked when we picked tea and when we did our skit. The skit was really fun performing. I want to go to camp again. I want the toilet and the cabin to be more near. There were bugs too. But I liked the air.

  10. My favourite part of camp was making the skits. Our group made a lot of noise while making the skit. But it was still fun! The last part of our skit was the best because Nora and me sang a happy song! i would like the cabins to be more near the toilets.

  11. My favourite part was zip lining, because it was a wonderful experience.
    Next year i would like the cabins to be more close so bugs and other living things cant enter the cabin.

  12. My favourite part of the camp was zip line because it was really fast and exiting. Next year I think they can have the rooms closer.

  13. My favourite part about camp was I think zip line and camp fire. Zip line, I was super happy I could go on it because I was lighter then 30kg. Camp fire, the marshmallow was very good and I think I had a good memories at grade 5 camp.
    For next year camp, I think the toilet should be closer.

  14. My favorite thing was Zip Line because I was really nerves at first, but I really liked when I was at 320m Zip Line.

  15. my favorite part abut camp was when we were on the way back and we had lunch it was sooooo good. for next years grade five camp i think they shouldn’t go to to the temple it was far away to walk and it was really boring and the food sucked.

  16. There is a lot of things that I like but my favorite thing was zip line because it’s my first time and you don’t fall it feels like flying…….
    I wish the rooms are closer to go and you don’t have to go uphill.

  17. Camp was absolutely great. And one of the things i liked about camp was the zip line. I the reason why is because I think the zip line was a great experience and a lot of fun. I especially liked the first course because the distance of actually zip lining was very long.But the hard part of doing the zip line was the last course. And the reason why was because the distance was about 320 meters which was pretty good but at the end of the zip line, the rope that i eventually hang on, goes upward so it was hard to go up. When i went on the zip line, at first i was pretty nervous because obviously the zip line was about 15 meters high. But i got use to the hight and other stuff as i went on. And i also really liked the the buffi lunch we had at the end of camp because it was delicious. I loved it. And one of the things i really liked was dessert. And more specifically i liked the cream puffs. I was literally addicted to it.
    I think that next time i should actually put on bug spray because i don`t exactly know if it was only my cabin but there were spider and huge insects allover the place. And maybe we should have a bit more light when it starts to get dark because its kind of dangerous if you cant see where your walking.

  18. My favorite part about camp was when we were on the way back and we had lunch it was sooooo good. For next year I want to I will tell them that the food doesn’t taste good so they wont get disappointed.
