THE SECOND DAY - TUESDAY, 29TH APRIL, 2014.

"La Toma del Agua" is a bilingual camp where everybody speaks English, even the monitors can't speak in Spanish, so we have to talk with them in English.

The monitors are young people from other countries, like Ireland, Italy, USA, Scotland, ... They're very funny and they are all the day laughing.

Here, in the camp, there are a lot of activities to do like, like orientation games at night, multiadventure park, a flying fox, archery, dancing, ...

I think the camp is really, really funny, and my friends agree with me, but it's really exhausting. However, it's worthy going.

WE LOVE THE CAMP !!!!

Traducción del último párrafo:

Opino que el campamento es realmente divertido y mis amigos están de acuerdo conmigo, pero es verdaderamente agotador. No obstante, merece la pena venir.

THE THIRD DAY - WEDNESDAY, 30TH APRIL, 2014.


Excursion to Toril Pine

Today we went on a hike up a mountain to see a big tree called Toril Pine. We walked about ten kilometres, 5 each way. The route was too hard but fun.The down was very difficult because we tripped. the tree was amazing because it is very big.In this place the monitors told us stories about the pines.

Hoy hemos subido a una montaña cercana para ver un árbol enorme llamado Pino Toril. Hemos caminado unos 10 kilometros y la ruta fue bastante dura pero divertida.

LOVE BOX AND BLACK BOX

Yesterday evening, we read the love letters and there were a lot of letters for the children and monitors, and we didn't have time to finish.
Later, we started the black box punishment because we broke the rules (speaking in Spanish). The punishment was "a love proposal" to Ashley (the monitor).

But first of all, we danced all together at the Music Square.




Written by: Paco G., Amós M., Diego C. and Kiko R.

Leímos muchas cartas de cariño y amistad para nuestros  compañeros, monitores y profesores. Algunos no cumplimos la norma al hablar en español y tuvimos que hacer una declaración de amor a nuestra monitora Ashley como castigo.
Pero lo primero fue bailar todos en la "Music Square".

MAGNETS AND PHONE COVERS

We made phone covers with our monitors Elvi, Scott and Doder in the morning. A lot of people chose the "ninions" design. We used a needle, it was funny!
Then, we had English time with Ashley and we played "Read the future". The "future" said I will be poor, but I said "I will make my future".

Some students made magnets with scissors and comics.
