“SPLASH!!!”. Dropping to the bottom of the pool, bubbles rose all around me. Rising to the top of the pool, I screamed out: “IT’S SOO COLD!!! I felt like I just dived into a pool of melted ice! My hair was dripping wet, which made it go frizzy. I dove back into the water and opened my eyes. The water was clear, but blurry at the same time. Feeling cold, I got out and made my way to the Hydroslide.

I was waiting impatiently in line. The cool breeze flew past me and sent a shiver down my spine. Goosebumps appeared on the surface of my skin. I was next in line. “Suck on Sauce!!” Seini-Mino screamed, as she slid down the slide. It was my turn. Sitting down on the platform, I awaited anxiously for the light to turn green. “GO SELENA!!” Athena shouted. I let go and slid down. Looking back, I saw Athena and the rest of the people disappear into blackness. I felt water rushing past me at a great speed. I was sliding in total darkness, then I saw a hint of light. Knowing that I was near the end, I braced myself for the wave that I was about to hit....”Splash!!” Water went all over my face. That was the most exciting hydroslide experience ever.

Coming out of the hydroslide, I was shivering. Grabbing my bags I made my way to the bathroom to take a nice shower. Turning on the shower, a huge gush of nice warm water covered my body. I’ve never been so relieved to have a shower in my life.

It was the end of Camp, and we spent our last day at Swimarama. It was a cool camp because I got to share the experience with my close friends, and also It’s our last year together so It was all worth while.

  1. I love the hook at the beginning pf your writing Selena - great work. Your paragraphs were beautifully crafted and kept me absorbed right to the end. I hope you share some more about camp for those of us who didn't get to join in
    I am so glad you got lovely weather for the pool day.
