Yes to camp!!

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.
