Last night we had our highschool campout which is a yearly tradition that we have amongst us highschool students. It was organized by our student council. We were all grouped into four teams: air force, army, navy, and marines. I happened to be part of the Air Force which was a group I absolutely LOVED. I had so much fun with the group and we were definitely able to show teamwork.
Some of the activities we had were the cheering contest, corn-eating contest, water balloon fight, obstacle course race, and a team race which was similar to that of Amazing Race. I was only able to take pictures of the cheering though since I participated in the other games.
At the end of the night, the Air Force ended up winning first place along with the Marines. After the awarding, we all headed for the bonfire.
Once the bonfire kind of died down, some of the seniors and I decided to bond with the sophomores. We were talking about, well, Marga's life. Hahahaha! But anyway, the seniors started leaving one by one to sleep till I was the only one left with the sophomores. I didnt wanna sleep that night so I decided that I'd stay with them. I spent the night then, listening to their stories concerning all these people which I must say was very entertaining. We were all too loud at a certain point during the night which resulted to a tention between us and the other campers. It was really funny though cause we were planning all these schemes against them.
It was almost sunrise and we were still around talking. I felt like dozing off so I eventually took a nap. I asked the sophomores who werent planning on sleeping to just wake me up instead when the sun was rising. They called me 10 minutes after. So yes, I slept for that long.
The above picture is us putting our plan into action. HAHAHAHA! Maris said we looked like we were in a refugee camp. =))
Anyway, eventually the sun was up and everyone else woke up. We all fixed up until the sun was already shining so brightly. Thus, the campout ended. I really had so much fun in this campout and I most especially enjoyed the amazing race which was dead fun (Going up to the 3rd floor of the academic building and being surprised by a white lady, anyone?). It just really sucks that the other seniors werent able to stay up with me. Its the our last campout so I wanted all the seniors to make the most out of it but they all ended up sleeping :( I'm definitely going to miss campout and my sophomores! I love you guys! :)
