Check out her submission right here:
This year I went to camp DeSoto. It was so fun! I definitely want to go back next year but anyways I’m going to tell you about my grade’s trip day. Our grade went swimming at DeSoto falls. It was really beautiful. On the way there, we sang songs on the bus. Once we got to this random parking lot in the middle of nowhere, we met our guides and from there it was about a 30 minute hike to the falls. We put on our life jackets and jumped in. We did not expect it to be cold, well, we kind of did but not THAT cold. After a few minutes you couldn’t really feel the cold because your body just kind of goes numb. I kept scaring my friend and it was so funny. A kind of unwritten rule for trip day is that your grade makes up a song/parody. Our parody was to “Mamma Mia” and I don’t remember many of the words I just remember that we just sang about how cold it was! I also remember that we saw a canoe on the hike there that was wrecked and stranded from a long time ago and we asked the tour guide if anyone was on it. She said no. We were all relieved and slightly disappointed. At the end of the day, it was a really fun trip and I’m excited to go rappelling next year!
Great submission, Olivia! I love sing-along bus rides, but the Mamma Mia parody all about how cold the water was at DeSoto Falls sounds even better! Glad to hear you already have your sights set on next year and an exhilarating rappel ride! Camp DeSoto sounds really cool.
