Report of the Night Camp
My school organized a two day night camp for the students of class IV, V, VI , VII, VIII and IX. The camp was organized from 14th December’18 to 16th December’18. This camp was indeed a very innovative way to make students learn and get experience.
On 14th December, we stayed back in school after giving our last unit test. First we made groups and named ourselves. I was in the Fear Fighter group At night, we had camp-fire. It was an indescribable experience. There was bonfire and it was surrounded with chairs. Students were singing, dancing, and showing their talents in many ways. I learnt to take responsibility of children as we were the senior most. We managed the students. The camp was unforgettable.
After the camp fire, we had great fun in our room. We had pillow fight; we were not able to sleep because of excitement. We slept late in night and woke up early. We had break-fast. After that Prabhu Sir and Girish Sir who are from Scouts and Guides trained us to be self discipline and self responsible. I learnt discipline, self responsibility. They organized adventurous tasks for us. There were seven such adventurous tasks. I learnt to balance myself, my ability, my potential towards the tasks. 
In the evening we had Personality Development session in which I learnt how personality shapes our behaviour and how we should be courteous and respect others. At night we danced and then went to sleep. Next Morning we arranged everything and returned home with a lot of learning.- Archana Koratkar/ IX.
