Today I went on my 8th grade retreat. It was about, "Not being conformed to the world's harsh surroundings" or whatever. The events were fun, and I'm surprised I did them.
First was a mountain climb. There was a 40ft fake mountain-climbing thing. I thought it would be easy and I could just breeze through it, but it was hard. The freezing temperature didn't help, either. I made it though!
Then it was the 50ft swing. You held on to a rope and you were attached to a harness-type thing. They lift you up 50ft in the air then drop you. It's kind of like a swing since you're going back and forth in the air.
Then we went kayaking (I don't think I spelled this right). I seriously thought I saw a snake while on the water, but it was just a rope (:
Then we had this puzzle-trick in the woods. It was fun, but my group didn't finish on time. Oh well.
It was a fun trip and I hope to go there next year.
