While staying at Trailblazers Camp, we learned an assortment of songs. One of these songs are...
I'll build a bungalow big enough for two, Big enough for two, my darling big enough for two And when we're married how happy we'll be, under the Bamboo, under the bamboo tree. Boom, boom, boom, Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom And you'll be M-I-N-E, mine For all the T-I-M-E, time And I will L-O-V-E, love you All the T-I-M-E, time. You are the B-E-S-T, best All the R-E-S-T, rest And I will L-O-V-E, love you
One activity that we did at Trail Blazers that many of us did not like was hiking. We did a half a day hike around the lake that we swam in at Trail Blazers. We also did something called Vagabond. That also has to do with hiking. What we did was we hiked for three days and two nights in the woods. We also walked up a mountain called Sunrise Mountain which is one of the tallest mountains in New Jersey. When you stand on the top of that mountain you can see a 360 degree view of New Jersey.
One of our favorite activities was swimming. All of us loved to go swimming.
We went swimming in a lake and we all were in different levels. There was the shallow, medium, and deep side of the lakes. In order
to be allowed to swim in the medium or deep water we had to take a test. Not many
of us passed the test to go into the medium or deep water, but there was one person who took the test very seriously and did
not give up. His name was Angel. He took the test and failed the test many times but he never gave up. Then on the second to
last day he took the test to go into the deep deep and he passed. He was so happy that he finally made it!
At first, some of the campers were afraid to go canoing. We were nervous because
we had to do a tip test. In a tip test, two campers and
the canoing specialist get on the boat, they paddle to medium water and then tip the boat over. The reason why they
do that is because they want to make sure that we know what to do in the event of a boat tipping over. A few days after the tip test we
went canoing around the whole lake.
