This is a scary story about camp so lets get started.It was a dark night only the rustling of the branches could be heard and the howling of the wind which made the door creep open ever so slightly every now and then. I saw a light it was heading towards our cabin getting brighter every minute one by one the girls got into their sleeping bags a little deeper and tried to be as silent as possible even Isabella who usually talked through the whole night. Suddenly the light got so bright it blinded us all at last my eyes adjusted and I could make out a tall figure from what I saw it looked he was holding a knife a screamed and the figure switched of the torch and turned on the light.It was… Stacy he wasn't holding a knife it was he key to his car He asked me why I screamed I was lost for words so I pretended to be asleep after what seemed like hours he left and I could get some proper rest!

Yes to Camp!
Although not everybody would agree, I want to say that we should have camp.
I have several reasons for arguing this point of view. Firstly we learn all about surviving in the wild and how to work as a team. We also learn how to handle a pistol and rafting skills I know this because I have been on school camps and have done this and learnt this skill.
Secondly Mrs Cameron and Mrs Burns said that they do not mind planning because it is worth it in the end, and during being on camp they get to see the other side of the children, and some of them experience things they have never done like rafting and shooting and so on.
Thirdly. You think it is too expensive Guthrie Smith Camp is only $25 per child because they let you make your own activities and you have to bring your own food for meals. The parents can help by baking so it is not as expensive as Mountain Valley.
Finally we need to take risks and be more independent and start to get over our fears. The word fear stands for False Evidence Appearing Real which is what Rory McCallum an outdoor educator told us. I know we need to take risks because we read an article about cotton wool kids and we know that take risks to know how far to push ourselves.
I strongly believe that the reasons above are why we should have camp.

Daffodil day is coming soon just a day away,
you better save up some money so you can put it in the bucket,
Saving all these poor kids in the hospital,
donate some money a dollar will do,
I have no cash where's the machine,
Do you have some money I could use,
maybe in that bucket over there,
Daffodil day daffodil day,
The flowers are beautiful,
Daffodil day daffodil day,
the money is worth it,
so don’t take it back,
Let the daffodils grow,
Daffodil day is important.
To the tune of let it go.
