At the wall climbing we put on the harnesses and climbed the rock wall. At Snorkel Island they taught us how to snorkel and told us if we caught a fish they would buy us a bag of chips and some Faygo. If we found three numbers we would get something out of the "Fun Box". At Trappers Cabin, someone told us the history of trapping. After that we went to Survival Island. At Survival Island someone taught us what to do in a survival situation. I was cold during Survival Island because I fell off the dock at Trappers Cabin.
We had a lot of free time at Haliburton. We played Capture the Flag with the British people. We had the choice to go on an Outtrip. The people who went were Scott, Kate, Laura, Dawn, John, J.J., Alex, Sean, Sharon, Andrew, Scouter Jeff, Scouter Richard, Scouter Bill and I. We didn't make it to our destination but we stopped at an American Troop's site. All the other free times, Kris and I went swimming. We went to the Hub and drank Faygo and ate cookies. Kris and I also swapped money with the British people.
The ride home was basically the same as the ride there except we stopped at Matt's cottage instead of the Dutch Oven.
