The seventh graders of Monmouth Middle school went to conservation camp, on September 25-29 at Bryant Pond so we could learn how to conserve the environment.

All of the activities that we did were hiking, canoeing, kayaking, bow and arrow, gun shooting, Spider web, night hike, ropes course, bon fire, skits, and conservation project. They are all related to conservation, Maine, and the outdoors. We not only got to learn about conservation we got to bond and know the people in our seventh grade class.

I think it’s safe to say that this was a once in a life time experience. While doing these outdoor activities it helped us build up our confidence for when you are in a situation, you will know what to do and get better at it.

As one of the main reasons to us kids to go there, was to get away from school work. We found out that we had to take a TEST”! So that we could shoot and get our hunting license. We had a really fun time learning how to handle a gun, and having the hands on experience. And an activity that we fail to talk about is the journals, they were given to us so that we could write about every activity that we did and then we had to pass it in for a grade in science.

Every morning we would get this wake up call that woke up EVERYONE!” The train would go by every ofter morning unfortunately it woke us up, but it was a fun experience.

We all had so much fun and we want to thank our counselors and teachers for making the trip so enjoyable.
