Camper’s Diaries (GIRLS) – Day 5
We woke up in the morning at 9:30am because we got to sleep in as we were going to Brighton. Saania, Zainab, Sophia Zamina and I sat in the coach together at the back where we talked, looked at the scenery, and talked in accents. When we arrived at Devil’s Dyke, there was a lot of lovely scenery and nature trails. We ate a lovely lunch which was made by Mansoora Aunty. It was delicious. We then prayed salaah under the open sky and afterwards, went to eat Ice Cream and play sports (and did the hokie cokie)- It was really fun! We played stuck in the mud and did mentors vs campers. It was funny because we used excuses like ‘the bus is here’. We then travelled back to the site and had planet time with our mentors. We were each given a sheet of paper with someones name on it and we had to write something nice about them.
Today was good as we woke up later than usual, at 9:30 as we were going for a day trip to Brighton. After having breakfast and packing our backpack, we boarded the coach at 12:30. The coach ride was fun because of all the beautiful scenery we got to see. When we reached Brighton, we found a picnic spot with a lovely view and ate our snacks. All in all it was a lovely day. After lunch, we played a few games with the ball and then boarded the coach back to the site

Today was one of the best days at the camp. We went to Brighton, Devils Dyke to be exact. Firstly we all got off the coach and on to the grass. There were beautiful views and the atmosphere around us was peaceful and calming. After having a look at the landscape we sat down in a circle and had our food. After our food we prayed namaaz and for wudhu we used very minimal water since we had water bottles. Then we played football as a big group and after we had ice cream. After we boarded back on the coach and hooked back to Lodge Hill.
