It was a long and gruesome drive that took 3 and half hours to get there. Luckily we were on a comfortable bus meant for traveling longer distances.

When we arrived to camp, we had two afternoon classes that including rock climbing and swimming. Rock climbing was a lot of fun, and even though some places on the rock wall were complicated to get by, I was able to make it to the top of the medium wall. In the pool, we were experiencing micro gravity. This is how astronauts are trained before they go into space. We couldn't touch the ground in the pool, but we had to build a cube while floating. It was difficult to communicate with classmates as their was a no talking rule in the pool to simulate the environment in space. Instead, we developed signs and signals for communication. That night, I saw a beautiful deer family. Their were two fawns and 4 adult, skinny, long legged deer. After seeing a lot of people, they raced off into the dark, cold night.
