I got back from a field trip today, at about 3:10. My class went to an enviromental center overnight. It was pretty fun-- we went out in the wetlands and collected "specimens." I was surprised at how many moving tiny organisms were in the water. It was very cool.
We did many other activities, such as team-building, studying the forest, games, etc. The camp was really nice for a camp-- the cabins were awesome! they were built above the ground, and had steps leading up to them. The food was pretty good-- for a camp. Except for the sticky buttery fake-tasting mash potatoes with mysterious looking gravy. Honestly, I'm not a big "cabin-girl" so it was nice to get back home and relax. It was rainy and muddy pretty much the whole time and we were outside the whole time.. yuck!
Today we did this awful orienteering course. For those of you who don't know what orinteering is, it's using a compass. I was awful at it. The counselors had to keep turning me around, and turning the compass so it would be lined up. I did not get anything out of it, and I was seriously embarassed. well, i guess i'd never used a compass before. And, the snobby girls in my class would run ahead and leave me with our teacher, to stare blankly and nod my head. That was the worst part of the camp. :/ It was a fun camp though. I really enjoyed the wetland ecology course. Learned a lot. I 'm ranting now, so MOVING on!
