Creative and imaginative kids go to camp sweet
If you like fort building, camp fires or the great outdoors, then come to camp sweet. It’s located west of olds with 160 acres of fun. This happened in 2017 September 6 to 9. The people who I will be interviewing are some students in connect charter schools grade 6 class 6.2 . Hear is some fun activities you can do at camp sweet ,fort building, night hike, seeing grandfather tree, camp fire, swimming in a safe river, the animal game. This event happens for kids to learn about different types of trees and fun games and learn out door skills. How they do camp sweet is there is a person called mr sweet and he owns camp sweet and it’s a 4 day trip for kids to learn a lot and they get Parent volunteers to come on the trip to help out and come do all the fun activity and Prepare food for every single camper and them selves.
Fort building is one of the Activities I focussed on. They began by searching for materials to use and then built a fort entirely from items found in the forest. What made this game fun was that materials were assigned a currency or value. Groups searched for items that were higher in value as these items could later be used to trade for other missing pieces. Students eventually created a whole town where there was a bank, a pawnshop, a police station and residential homes. Streets were developed by sweeping pine cones and needles to the side. Students reported that this activity helped them learn how to build and acquire skills needed to work together to build a fun town.
Now that we’ve learned about camp activities would like to talk about camp traditions. One great traditions is the campfire. Every night campers gathered around the campfire to sing some campfire songs such as miss Mary and the three fisherman as well as the cigar song. Following the songs, everyone would enjoy hot chocolate and snacks such as ginger snap cookies, brownies and rice krispy squares as examples. This was a nice way to conclude a day of action and learning and fun at camp sweet. For more information please visit www.connectcharterschool
