Today’s post is from Laine P., who's camp story is just as disgusting as it is hilarious. Check out this brief story from her summer stay at Camp Point Clear.
“Hi! My name is Laine and I am 13 years old. This year I went to Camp Point Clear for the 6th time. I went to camp for 3 weeks, it was so fun! Today, I am going to tell you about my White Water Rafting trip on the Ocoee River. At my camp everyone that is 12 or older can go on the trip. When we first got to the White Water Rafting place, we were given a safety briefing on what to expect on the river. This was my second time, so I wasn’t very worried about it. My group ended up being 5 of my best friends, so I was really excited. When we first got on the river, everything was fine and we were having a nice smooth ride. Then, about halfway down the river we came up on a HUGE rapid. Our guide told us to put our feet under the seat in front of us, which I did. We started down the rapid and everything was fine, then boom, the whole raft tilted on my side, water came in the raft, and my foot came out of the seat. I leaned back so far that I thought I was going to fall out! Thankfully I didn’t! After that rapid we were all much more careful to keep our feet secured in the raft! Even though I almost fell out of the raft, I had so much fun and can’t wait for next summer!”
Yikes, Laine! Thanks for sending this nail-biter for your camp story submission. Sounds like you narrowly avoided some pretty real danger. I guess you’ve learned your lesson about the wild ride of white water rafting. Glad you survived! At least this story wasn’t as stinky as yours from last year! Haha!
