Homework – Expert Groups

Thursday, you will become experts in different areas of camping and surviving in the wild! It is important that you choose to do something that suits your personality and is something you would be interested in and good at. Read the choices, think, talk to someone and then make a comment to tell us your choice and explain why you chose it. People who choose “Big Picture and Camp Layout” will need to be good leaders, so really think carefully about that one:

Shelter Building

Water Purification & Hygiene

Cooking

Orienteering and GPS

Fire building & Safety

Safety, First Aid and Risk Assessment

Camp Layout and Big Picture

    I have chosen to do cooking because it is something which I have passion for and it brings back old experiences, I would also like to do this because it matches my personality and I will be able to use a lot later on during life.

    I have chosen to do ‘shelter building’ because I want to know how to build shelter if I am lost or something and I really want to know what type of things we are going to use. Shelter building also matches my personality I am pretty happy to do these type of tasks.

    I would choose shelter building because I read a book called my side of the mountain and the far side of the mountain and the main character relies on shelter building allot and the book also teaches us how to survive in the wild. I choose this because if I get lost I can find materials to build a shelter and how to build one.

    I think I would choose Shelter Building because I really want to know how to build a shelter so then when I get lost or doing some challendges/adventures I would beable to build one and have a nice place/thing to cover me. I like to do these kind of types of things because it just feels right for me and its sort of my personality.

    I wouldn’t be too bad on shelter building…

    I think that mine is also cooking because I like to cook because it is fun and you can enjoy it very much. But I am a total amateur in cooking course menus and I only know how to do simple dishes :))

    I would like to do Water Purification and Hygiene because to be honest, I am a hygiene person at times. I do like to have fun and play in sand but I don’t like having mud on my hair and stuff. I like to take care of myself and be clean because it can be important to our lives and its just part of my personality. I was interested in water Purification because I would like to know what we are going to do and it seems like we are going to see how pure the water is and all that and I really want to know how pure the water is in Kanchanaburi but if its’s something else I won’t mind because it sounds interesting to me. I think that I will be good at those 2 because I am a hygienic person and I am used to being clean all for the water I think we are going to learn about the pureness and all and it could relate to cleanliness and I think Ishould be good at it.

    I have chosen Safety, First Aid and Risk Assessment because I enjoy it and me and my mum said this will be the best one for me because I am determined and I am experience. I think I will be quiet bad at the rest of the thing’s because I have tried and I failed.

    I think I would like to do ‘Shelter Building’ because I like challenges and I never build a shelter before. I also think that if I know how to make a Shelter when I go out to camp with my family or ect. I can also teach my parents how to build.

    I will choose Camp layout and big picture
    because when i am in a group i always kind of act like the leader
    and i think it will be very fun.

    I chose fire building and fire safety because I like to play with fire but I want to play with it while being safe and not burning myself. I think this one is good for me because I like taking risks and fire building could burn you. I also think that it is right for me because I really like this and I will be interested in making fire which will help me concentrate more and pay attention to make sure I don’t burn myself.

    I have chosen “Camp Layout and Big Picture” because I am used to being a leader and I really want to know how things are organized in camp. I chose between
    “Fire building & Safety” and “Camp Layout and Big Picture” but at the end of that debate I chose “Camp Layout and Big Picture”. I think this will be an opportunity to develop my organization , manegment and leadership skills. Also I am excited to work with other children and adults.

    I chose fire buliding & safety because in Sweden why hike a lot in the forests and when I do that next time we go hiking and we bulid a fire then I will have more experience and knowledge about how to start a fire in the forest. It is also good to know more about safety in the nature.

  22. November 11, 2010 at 7:03 pm

    I chose Safety, First Aid and Risk Assessment because it’s a challenge for me and I like new challenges not old challenges.

    I think I would like to try “Safety, First Aid and Risk Assessment” OR “Water Purification & Hygiene”. Safety because that is very important especially when we are away from home. Its important to have clean water to stay healthy. So looking forward to the camp!!

    • Mr. Sam
      November 11, 2010 at 8:30 pm

    • Mr. Sam

    I have chosen “Safety, First Aid and Risk Assessment” because I’m intrested in take care of people and FIRST AID.I think first aid is important because first aid can save people.

    I would’ve chosen ‘Cooking’ but I read that it is full now so my second choice is ‘Fire building & Safety’. The reason I chose this is because I am interested in building fires and I think I don’t know much about fire safety so I would really like to learn it. This doesn’t really suit my personality but I want to do something different for once.
    My other choice would be ‘Water Purification & Hygiene’. This is because I am pretty hygienic so I might be good at this activity. Another reason why I would like to do this is because I would like to know more about water purification since I am not such a expert at it.
    If both of those activities are full I would chose ‘Safety, First Aid and Risk Assessment’ because I would like to know what to do if somebody, or I was really hurt. I also would like to know more about safety because I want to know what is safe and what is not when I am in a big situation.
    If all of the above are full (which is unlikely) then I would chose ‘Orienteering and GPS’. This is because I am not so confident with using GPS’s and/or a compass. I think this might come in handy in the future.
