After lots of fun English lessons in Calgary, it was finally time for us to experience the Canadian Rockies! We headed out to Kananaskis where we set up our tents and prepared for 5 nights in the wilderness. We got amazing, sunny weather for all our activities and spent the cool nights under the twinkling stars! It was an amazing time for everybody: experienced and non-experienced campers alike!
We spent our days playing lots of sports, swimming and mingling together. Everybody pitched in to cook our delicious meals which consisted of fruits, vegetables and meat dishes! We made scrumptious dishes like souvlaki, pasta and stir-fry. When we weren’t cooking, we played frisbee, ping-pong, soccer and swam in the lake. There was always something fun to do to keep everybody occupied! The Beavers also got to visit some amazing sites in Alberta – the Columbia Icefields and Lake Louise on horseback. We also went on a group hike up a mountain, where we arrived at a beautiful lake! Everybody got amazing pictures of the sights and made amazing memories with their camp friends.
After days of fun under the sun and stars, it was time to head to West Edmonton Mall. We wrapped up our sleeping bags, had a delicious final breakfast, and got the road. The bus ride to the mall and back to Calgary consisted of everybody sharing their stories of their favourite moments camping in Canada’s rocky mountains! What a blast!
