Hey Camp Gilgal!
On Wednesday and Thursday last week, Sox, Sitruce and I went on the adventure camp scouting trip. Guys. This trip is bonkers. And by bonkers I mean ridiculously beautiful and crazy fun.
On Wednesday we checked out some different campsites to stay in. We found a really beautiful one with big sites for our tents and food, a pool, fields, some nice hikes, a lake, and a really quirky mini golf park. I think it’s gonna be a great home base after long, fun days.
This year, the focus of our trip is rock climbing, but we didn’t actually go to scout that out since we’ve done it in past years. Nonetheless, it will be awesome.
Okay, now onto my favourite part – the hikes! The hikes we scouted out are gorgeous, challenging (in a good way!) and so much fun. At certain points I was galloping through all of the nature because I was so joyful and having such a good time. Here is a picture of me passing out from the beauty (don’t worry I’m okay, it was all in good fun):
This was our first hike, which was around a lake with some stellar views. At one point, I said “hey, what’s that noise?” and Sitruce said “… I think it’s just quiet.” It was so peaceful, and so great to escape the constant noise of the city for a little while.
Our second hike definitely took the cake. It was called the “Ice Caves”… dun dun dun. The name says it all, we got to hike through caves that were still icy from the winter! They probably won’t be icy once adventure camp rolls around, but the air inside the caves was so fresh and crisp. It was a crazy hike and definitely a good workout. The caves were just so cool I couldn’t believe it (if you can’t tell I’m a huge fan of trees and nature and this trip was just the best time ever). I also found an inukshuk on this hike which made my Canadian heart happy.
So there you go, a little taste of what’s to come this year at Adventure Camp. I don’t want to give you too many details and spoil the fun of the unknown ;)
I’m so stoked for Adventure Camp 2018 and I hope you are too!
