Porthpean Camp - May 2019
 
Day 1:
Rebecca: On Wednesday, we left school first thing in the morning on the coach. When we arrived, we put our things in our tents and we were shown around the camp. After lunch, we did rock climbing and archery. I really liked the rock climbing because the one of the leaders gave me a boost so I didn't have to climb! For dinner we had a roast and lots of choices for dessert, it was yummy! In the evening we played some sports and had a quiz. Before bed, we had a story and hot chocolate!
 
Day 2:
Sophia: This was my favourite day as we spent the day on the beach but most of it at sea! We had lots of choices of activities, we could do paddle boarding, canoeing, kayaking or coastering. I did canoeing both times and it was really fun, sometimes you even got to stand up! My favourite part was when we saw a seal, bobbing in the water! I also liked swimming in the sea.
 
Vincent: In the evening, we had a talent show. I did some dance moves and came second! It was really fun!
 
Day 3:
Preston: My favourite day was the last day because we did the high ropes. I liked this because there were lots of things that I hadn't tried before. The best part was the leap of faith because you had to jump off a really high ledge and try and hit a ball, I found it really exciting as I don't mind heights. There was also a zip wire and to make it stop you had to day 'Ok google, stop'!
 
Emma: We all had a brilliant time on camp. We got to try lots of activities and sleep in a tent!
