Camp Shady Brook Trip

I went to Camp Shady Brook with both second grade crews (Miss Hanni’s and Miss Sarah’s crew), and my Dad did too. In my group there was Elena, Sarah, Grace, Anna, Sophia, Megan and me. My leader was Miss Tricia. We were supposed to sleep in tents but it was going to be too cold outside so we had to sleep in cabins. We got to the camp around 12:00 pm, then we had lunch. After lunch we put our stuff in the cabins and then we went on a hike. The hike that we went on was pretty hard because there were really steep hills. We ate dinner in the dining hall – they made the dinner for us. One of the boys in Miss Sarah’s class had a birthday so he got to kiss the moose. We had a campfire in the lodge and we sang some silly songs. Then we went to bed.

On the second day we got up, had breakfast, then we went on a challenge hike. The weather was kind of weird because it snowed, hailed, rained and was sunny on the challenge hike. In the afternoon of the second day we did rock climbing, a low ropes course, and we had solitude and reflection time. We helped the camp by picking up some wood chips because they were doing some construction there. We tried to help out the camp because the camp had been so nice to us. After we ate dinner we went back to our cabins to get on our warm gear and go to the campfire outside. We sang some more silly songs. One of my favorite songs was Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, and another of my favorite’s was Rock the Boat. Then we went back to our cabins to sleep.

On the third day we went to breakfast, we had a little hike, and then we packed up and went back to school. When we got back to school we had lunch, then we went out for recess, and then did solitude and reflection.
