Grade 10 Summer Camp

This year for Grade 10 camp we went up River Inlet and although it was a little rough around the edges it was probably the best and most comfortable trip yet. It was a very long trip and due to the weather we were unable to cross from Vancouver Island to Good Hope cannery on the first night so we had to stay in a church. It took until 6pm the next day to get to the cannery but the nice beds and a nice meal. On the first day we went out on a day trip to collect data for our science investigation which was a very wet and unpleasant experience although we collected all the data we needed. After that we went fishing which is what the cannery and area is known for, we caught a couple of salmon but had to release them and then we lost a third. My boat decided to go bottom fishing where we caught upwards of 30 fish as we caught a fish every 30-45 seconds. The fish were mainly bass but Arveen caught a 20-pound ling cod, I only caught two fish myself as I watched Arveen and Jerry fish for the majority of the trip but I enjoyed it. The next day we visited Oweekeno Village where we learned about their history and ancestors which was very interesting. Our last day was a travel day but unfortunately¬†I was incapacitated for the entirety of it. The night before I had participated in a workout with 200 squats, I did all the squats but because I have rarely exercised those muscles and the squats totally seized up my legs and I was in a lot of pain. I could barely move and the cramped ferry ride back didn’t help, we took a bus to Nanaimo and then the ferry back at which point my legs were in excruciating pain. Luckily it didn’t take that long to recover, overall, aside from the unfortunate exercise problem the content and accommodations¬†of the trip were very enjoyable.
