Camp report

Working day 1

The Carnival camp from the ninth to the eleventh of Feb was held in a sea scouts ground positioned in Penal. We had to arrive on our own towards the campsite to get 8am. I had a previous involvement the night before and informed Mickey that I would not be able to arrive that early. I obtained there around 10 are. I had certainly not missed much thankfully. Everyone had previously pitched the brand new nice smelling tents so when I showed up the group leaders were having a getting together with and the other folks were calming. A little while when i put away my personal belongings Ainsley my group leader was included with instructions. My own group brand ‘Floaters' contained Ainsley, Kedar, Antonio, Denzel, David, Asifa, Celine and i also. We were about to start the day's activities which will begin with string work. I was to go to several stations manned by several leaders to learn/ review our knots. There were likewise scouts for the campsite at the time. So each of our group followed about three with the scouts to find out rope function also. All of us visited Ravi first, then your scout's head, then Mickey then last but not least James and John. In all of the we reviewed/learnt the reef knot, the fisherman's knot, the fisherman's bend, the highway man's hitch, the man harness, the round switch and two half hitches, the hardwood hitch, the clove problem, fireman's chair knot, bed sheet bend and the sheet fold. After this we had a session with James means take care of the equipment which included cutlasses, rucksacks and more. He also demonstrated the proper way to apply certain tools such as an axe and a observed for example. I was to do lashings next…after some time of this it had been time for lunch break. The girls inside my group visited cook as the boys continue learning lashings. In all we all learnt three lashings: the square, indirect and large lashing. To get lunch we were making french fries and toast chicken. It took us some time to finish considering that the fries had taken a while to fry. I was so very happy to be able to use a proper range instead of being forced to light fires which would have taken 10 times longer. The food came out wonderful and tasted wonderfully. Whilst we were cooking food the rest of the group was engaged in a fun activity but We didn't brain. After everyone was finished with ingesting it was receiving late. We had a night walk that night and so everyone had to get ready. Many of us assembled in the entrance intended for the groupings. We were advised to only stroll inside single file and to be careful and to certainly not overtake anyone. The night walk was quite short about two to two and a half several hours long. We didn't really see much considering it was an all street hike. It was really fun though. Once we all return back about two hours later we were allowed today to go and bathe. My personal group was the last young ladies group to go and bathe so all of us waited intended for the various other girls to come back. We seated down by the swings and table and laughed and talked. The previous girl group took genuinely long to bathe apparently since the bathroom became clogged. When we arrived at the washroom place the bathroom was at a terrible state but fortunately Reshma one of the older young ladies was around and your woman unclogged the bathroom with her hands which we believed was really low. After everybody bathed which apparently really does take lengthy we all headed back to the campsite. At that time it was very late and none in the boys had even bathed yet. Wayne told us it was lighting out for us and that the young boys were going to bathe now. In my camping tent it was Asifa, Celine and myself. All of us couldn't rest at all so we remained up and chatted and joked. The boys frequented us to ask for snacks and find out something. Right before we were going to bed the funniest thing occurred. Ainsley was calling away my brand so Celine and I poked our mind out the camping tent to see Ainsley fall level on the wood made board generated for over the small stream. At this time it was entertaining but we made sure he was okay....
