Friday 28th

Today as always we got up at 8:00 a.m. At 8:30 we had breakfast. We ate milk, cereals, toasts with jam or butter. At 9:00 we brushed our teeth and then we had a class with our English teachers. Then Ontario and Alberta went to the village and Quebec and British Columbia had Canadian workshop.

Ontario and Alberta went to the village. In the village we went to the market and there we divided in diferent groups for look the stores. There were many stores, like cattle market in which we saw cows, horses, goats, sheep. There were also clothes, bracelets and necklaces, handbags… It was very funny!

The cattle fair was very interesting. Our friends from Cantabria were more familiar with the different kinds of cows and sheep, and we had the opportunity to learn new things.

Quebec and British Columbia did Canadian Workshop. They did a Dream Catcher. It’s an object that traps your nightmares and helps you sleep. This object comes from the indian tribes from North America.











Our last presentations were much better than the ones from the first day.  We were very proud and happy, and so were our techers from Red Leaf and Ins. de Sales.  We had made a very good job and we learned a lot of English.

Our teachers from the camp gave us a Certificate and we took photos together, her they are:

As it was our last night, we were really sad and we didn’t want to go to bed.  We celebratedthe TALENT SHOW and we had a very good time together.

We also celebrated Halloween Night, we put on the costumes we had made two days before in one of the workshops, it was a “scary” night

Aren't you scared?Aren’t you scared?????

As you can see, the teachers also participated in the scary show!

Some companions showed their “talents” but the winner was Sergi Abaijon from Ins de Sales.  He sang a lot of beautiful traditional Spanish songs.

Sergi had a little accident on the second day after our arrival, but he was perfect for the last two days.  Look at him on Tuesday!!

He had a sprain in his ankle, but everything had a good end!

Here you can see some photos of the event:

We sang our favourite songs.

We went to bed, but this was a relly long night, for us and for the teachers….  We didn’t want this fantastic experience to end.

See you tomorrow!

The Ontario and Alberta teams prepared the presentation about the food chain. After this we did the presentation about ”Cultural & Natural environment” and ”Food Chain”. After shower we had a good dinner: salad and pizza! Then we played casino games: in the Casino War it was very easy to win money, in the Roullette it was very easy to lose your money, the Ghetto dice was very funny and easy, in the Black Jack if you have 21 or a number near 21 you can win, but if you have more than 21 you lose, the Ace Race was very funny and interesting.











Ace Race was a really funny game. The students you can see are from Cantabria, our friends.













This is the ROULETTE, a special part of the Casino, only for "rich" people.  You could play there when you had more than 200 canadian dollars.

Wednesday, 26th

Today in the morning we had breakfast. Later all the groups visited the natural park of Bertiz. In the park we watched a little movie about the park. Then two groups visited the museum and the other groups visited the garden. The garden is a botanical  park with a lot of plants from other countries and very big trees.

Look at these beautiful pictures we took:

The teachers were really nice, and handsome!

Later the four groups walked across the forest 9 km more o less. It was very tiring and someone fell down. When we arrived we had lunch and free time.

After this, we played some games. The first was “catch the flag ” and the second was “tug-of-war”  with the teachers.

Then, we had a shower,  we put our pyjamas on and we talked to the parents.

We had lessons with the school teachers.  We had the lessons in our pyjamas!  It was the first time we had a class in pyjamas, for us and for the teachers too!

After the class, we had dinner.

Finally, we watched a film: Men in black. It was in English!  (but with Spanish subtitles!)


It was funny. And finally we went to sleep. We were very tired. Good night!

Welcome to the camp!

Hello! We are 25 students of Sales Secondary School. In this blog, we will publish a daily report of our activities, our photos and videos.

Sunday 23rd: This is the travel day. At quarter pas ten, we are in front of our Secondary School. At half past ten, we go up the bus and we go. Our destination is the Baztan Valley, in Lekaroz (Navarra). After nine hours, we arrive.

When we arrived, the teachers of the camp were waiting for us outside the youth hostel and they showed us our bedrooms and then, after dinner, we played two games in the games room.

For dinner we ate rice with tomato and nuggets. It was delicious!

There are two schools: Institut de Sales from Viladecans, Barcelona (we) and another school from Cantabria, Vega de Toranzo.

After dinner the teachers from Red Leaf prepared an activity to know the other students from Cantabria.  We were a little shy at the beginning, but, at the end, we all laughed together.

At night, we made the bed and went to sleep.

Welcome to Navarra!
