Stanley

Thursday 6th November, our fourth day at Little Canada, I was woken by the sound of a thump on the door. Within minutes I was up and raring to go!

After a shower and a well-deserved breakfast, I was on my way to my first activity, the dreaded Giant Swing. We were harnessed in ready to go. After the first couple of people I doubted myself. Could I do this? There was no choice. I was in. 10ft. 20ft. 30ft. 40ft. done. Slowly, cautiously I was ready to pull the string. My legs felt like jelly. GONE. Goose bumps were showering me. But I wanted to go again!

After a quick breather in my cabin I was ready to explore! I was heading to my next activity the Legendary Rock Climbing. I was harnessed in and first up to go.  Me and Bradley were a rocket climbing the huge wall and did it in less than a minute! Then the second time on the hardest wall I was fine going up ¾ of the way but then I stopped. Is this safe? Oh no I’m slipping. I can’t do it. I had got it .I had grabbed the next rock and I was on my way to the top. I had done it! I came down with a proud smile on my face and I was on my way to a delicious lunch.

After a fabulous lunch, cooked by the chefs, I was on my way to my third activity the miraculous Aeroball! We got into teams for the competitive Aeroball championships. Me and Kaylum got into a team on the trampoline and had to face the crazy Harvey and Bradley but after a vicious match of shooting we came out with a draw. After the competition had ended we had finished with a mighty… Third place. Better luck next time!

After a snappy break, we headed to our next adventure the daunting JACOBS LADDER! Suddenly, I was strapped in and first up to go with my two great friends Kaylum and Maddie. As we got higher it seemed to get more and more perilous. I couldn’t do it. I had to come down. It was too shaky. It had beaten me. I had remembered an important message, no regrets. I had to go again. I was soon back up and high at six ladders up but it was time up and I came down feeling proud of myself.

After a luxurious dinner I was in my cabin I was getting ready for a groovy end of week disco! At 7:00 pm on the dot ( I think) we set  out  to the A zone to celebrate with my friends. But even before we got there we could hear the booming music, it was like thunder. At 9:00pm it was time for bed to be awoken for the next exciting day!
