Tribune Bay Camp

Hey! Did you know the Tribune Bay Out Door Education Center has about 3000 kids there every year! I didn’t. My Class went there and it was SO awesome, we did so many cool things and learned a lot. We all learned some really good life lessons too. Here are some good lessons life lessons you should hear.

Be Respectful, I know it seems like an obvious one but it’s very true. At camp being respectful is a very important thing, one example was when we were waiting for our food, the nicest and quietest table gets food first, to be honest my table never went first but after the first few eating times we smartened up. Also in the cabins and dorms, everyone had to be respectful of each other and be quiet so everyone could get a goodnight sleep, it sometimes got a bit rowdy in the cabins because there was like 15 kids in one but the cabanas were mostly calm. Even on the climbing activity’s respect was a big one because you have to respect your leader and first person had to be listening to the instructor or they could not go first or not go at all, because it might not be same if they didn’t listen.

Teamwork, teamwork was a huge part of camp, I’d say just about every activity involved team work, especially “Giants Ladder”. Giants Ladder is almost impossible for a 12 year old by them self but with 2 of them they can push and pull each and other to the top at a pretty good speed. I did not make it to the top but I know lots of kids did, I also know they had great teamwork between them. Some activates like the “Leap of Faith” or “Possum Log” you would really think they use teamwork, but guess what? They do! The crew holding the belay rope uses lots of teamwork, also cheering from your team is also teamwork!

Trust, trust was also a big one in camp because you have to trust the people holding the rope your belayed on, as well as you need to know and trust that your equipment will hold you because its all in your head. Sometimes forgot I was on belay then I remembered it was all in my head. The teachers need to trust that you will behave well at camp and they trust we will behave in our cabins and at eating time and pretty much the whole time were at camp you get my point.

Overall I had a really amazing time at camp, my favorite thing at camp was the climbing activities and the food. I also really liked the campfires songs, especially “SAVE ME BABOSHKA” that was my favorite song. I think we all will remember camp for many many years! Thanks for reading.

Skiing

Hello readers

Since it is winter I will be talking about one of my winter hobbies…

Skiing

I like to downhill ski, I went skiing for the first time when I was 4 when I lived in Nova Scotia but I didn’t ski very much after that, until I moved to BC. I moved to BC when I was 8 and started skiing lots because Mt. Washington is 45 minutes away. I went on my first chair lift when was 8 and I loved it, and I went skiing lots.

When I was 9 I went to whistler blackcomb, It was soo awesome the skiing there was sick! And I got to see the olympic rings at the top of the ski hill. I also got to go to all the cool shops by the hotels up there, and they had a bungee trampoline where you’re strapped in jumping on a trampoline and it was really fun to do flips on it.

I’m not sure what type of skis I have but I know I have salomon ski boots, my favorite ski lift/ski hill is whiskey jack, it goes right up to the  rockstar terrain park. A terrain park is A park where there’s jumps and rails and stuff for skis and snowboards by the way I snowboard to so I might make a post about that soon. Any way the reason they call it the rockstar terrain park is because the jumps are made by the company Rockstar energy, They are really big jumps, there are different size jumps/rails with different difficulties  S=small, for beginners on the park, not for new to skiing people, M medium, not easy not hard, L large, If M is easy then L is on level up, XL extra large, quite hard only the best hit XL, and there might be XXL but I don’t know. I hit S and M, my first time hitting M was scary but fun I went about 10 feet in the air which is about 3 seconds of airtime. I can’t wait to ski and snowboard this winter! I went snowshoeing up on the mountain today there was lots of snow and I think the lifts will be opening soon!

Thanks for reading! Have you ever skied before? snowboarded?

Hockey

Hello readers,

Today I will be talking about one of my hobbies, hockey. I have been playing hockey for 8 years now, my favorite position is center or right wing. Our team name is the “Panthers” and our colours are black with red shoulder’s. My favorite thing about hockey is that it’s a canadian sport and it’s lots of fun, sometimes we get to go to tournaments in other places. We go to places like Port Alberni, Campbell river and sometimes Victoria, it’s fun staying in hotels too. We where lots of gear when we play hockey, my favorite brand of gear is Bauer, all my gear is Bauer except for my chest protector, elbow pads and stick. I don’t know what brand my chest protector is, my elbow pads are Jofa’s and my stick is Reebok. My favorite NHL team is the Montreal Canadiens aka the Habs, I have a sweet Montreal Canadiens hat that I where all the time. My favorite player on the Habs is Carey Price, he is the goalie and he got an award for best goalie in the world! If you don’t know what the Habs logo looks like it’s the one you see below.

Hi everybody,

Home to me is Newfoundland, seeing my grandparents and cousins and aunts and uncles, big family dinners and being on the farm, seeing the sheep, llama and other animals. Home is camping, campfires and making s’mores and home is Christmas, having family over and shredding the snow capped mountain. In the summer home is on the water, skimboarding, stand up paddle boarding and fishing in our boat, boating to tree island and even tribune bay! Going to Kelowna in the summer and seeing my grandma, and seeing where my dad grew up, and going to the okanagan lake.

Comment what home is to you, thanks for reading and come back soon to see more post on my blog!

Scootering

fullsizerender

(Photographer: Me, that’s my scooter)

Hi readers,

This is my first post that I get to choose the topic of, so today I will be talking about scootering. I have been scootering for a year now. I have learned many tricks over the year. I can do a… Barspin, tailwhip, 360, heelwhip and double tailwhip. My best trick is a fingerwhip which is when you take your feet off the deck, pull it up and spin the deck with your fingers and land with your feet back on the deck.

 

I scooter with my friend Lane, he is pretty good at scootering too considering he has only been  scootering for about a month now. His best trick is a tailwhip.  

It all started one day after school. Lane,my other scooter friends and I were outside. I had my scooter and I let Lane try a tailwhip on the flat ground. He was really close, so I said, “Hey we should go to the skatepark and Lane can try a tailwhip off a ramp.”

So we went to the skatepark. It took a bit of time but eventually Lane landed it and he realised he liked scootering.

I got a Lucky Crew scooter (the one you see below)for my 11th birthday, Lucky is my favorite brand. I also like other brands like District, Ethic, Apex, Envy, North and Havoc. My favorite rider/riders are the Funk Brothers who are really good at scootering and they make cool vlogs. Their names are Capron and Corey, Capron is the older brother Corey is the younger one and they are sponsored by Apex.

Some other riders that are awesome are… JonMarco Gaydos, Cody Flom and Tanner Fox who are all sponsored by Lucky scooters.

 

 Well, there you go, all the things about me and scootering! Thanks for reading and see you next post!
