IB High School “Tribal”Camp Log

IB高中部户外露营活动集锦

Friday, 11th November

The students had an early start to the day but were very excited to be leaving for the first camp of the school year. The purpose of the outdoors camp activity was for students to experience life in the ‘wild’, learn essential survival skills in the process and for the Grade 10 and 11 staff and students to bond. The ride to the camp site was short but pleasant and the students’ first task was to gather in their House Teams and come up with their own unique house sloganand draw their totems. The students also painted their faces and decorated their heads with feathers to get into the tribal theme for the camp. The winners were the Yellow Eagles and the runner-ups were the Red Kingfishers. The students then set up their own tents and had a simple lunch. It was the first time many students and teachers have built their own tents so they learned a lot from the experience.

同学们都起了个大早,开启了本学年第一次激动人心的户外露营之旅。本次露营活动的目的是让同学们去体验野外生活,学习基本的生存技能,并让1011年级的师生们进行更好的互动。去往露营基地的旅程虽然不长但一路上充满了欢歌笑语。一到达目的地,同学们的首个任务是以小分队聚集成各自的部落,设计自己部落的口号和图腾。同学们还在脸上画出各种图案,用羽毛装饰头部来营造部落文化。最终,黄鹰队赢得了第一,红翠鸟队赢得了第二。之后,同学们都忙着搭建帐篷并吃了顿简单的午餐。对于许多师生而言,在野外搭建帐篷还是头一次,大家也从中获益良多。

In the afternoon students completed a treasure hunt around the large parkland and then were taught how to build a large shelter in case of emergencies, such as being prepared for a large downfall of rain. They used ropes, bamboo and machetes to help them complete the shelter. The teachers again voted for the best shelter and the red Kingfishers were declared the winners this time. The criteria used by the teachers for judging the shelters included creativity of design, durability and beauty.

当天下午,同学们完成了在露营基地的寻宝活动,并且学习如何搭建大型庇护所,以防大雨侵袭。同学们使用麻绳、竹子和砍刀来完成庇护所的搭建。老师们则根据创意、牢固和美观这三个标准投票选出最佳庇护所,最终,红翠鸟队赢得了第一。

The weather during the evening turned very cold and the students were given a treat of being able to use their phones for half an hour.  After half an hour of phone using, the phones were collected for safe keeping. Lights out was at 10:30pm, and silence descended on the whole field of tents, apart from occasional snoring and whispering in the night.

当晚气温骤降,同学们被允许使用半小时的手机和家人沟通。之后,手机依旧被收回。晚上十点半同学们便准时进入自己亲手搭建的帐篷就寝,结束了忙碌的第一天。夜色渐深,整个营地也安静下来,偶尔还听到鼾声和轻声耳语。

In the morning everyone was up and ready by 7:30am and all enjoyed some hot ginger tea. Shortly afterwards, morning exercise commenced with a run around the parkland followed by a game of Tug of War. The winners this time were the Blue Dolphins. The rest of the morning was spent collecting and preparing lunch. The majority of the boys opted to learn how to capture some chickens, while the rest of the students dug up root vegetables from the ground. The students then had to clean the food they had just gathered, prepare their live chickens for cooking by removing feathers and the wastes and then finally cook their own dishes using a live fire and woks. Smoke got everywhere and students had to take turns to have breaks to recover from their burning throats and watering eyes, but everybody felt a huge sense of satisfaction seeing and enjoying the feast produced at the end.

周六,1112

清晨七点半,同学们都准时从温暖的帐篷里爬了起来,喝了一杯热腾腾的姜茶,准备迎接新的一天的挑战。稍事休息便拉开晨练,先集体绕湖慢跑热身,接着,在激烈的拔河赛中,蓝豚队获得了胜利。接下来,同学们要在营地亲手采集食材,准备午餐。大家分工合作,大多数男生学着去捕捉当地的草鸡,剩下的同学则在菜地采挖蔬菜。然后,同学们要清洗食材,如去除鸡毛和内脏,最终砍柴生火,用铁锅烹饪出美味。此时,营地升起袅袅炊烟,同学轮流上场一展厨艺,尽管生火时浓烟呛喉,泪流满面,但是最终大家心里都感到极为满足,因为这是大伙一起亲手烹制的一顿饕餮大餐。

After a break the students learned basic first aid for treating a broken arm and leg and were also taught how to make their own makeshift stretcher. They watched demonstrations from the instructors and then practiced on their team members. The leader chose certain members to pretend to be ill while the others had to carry the injured member on their stretchers towards the camp site. Teams carried their 'injured members' for about one third of the journey to the camp site and all students hiked the rest of the journey back to base camp. The actual hike was around 5.8km long with some rocky terrain to manoeuvre.

午休之后,同学们学习了急救知识,例如如何包扎受伤的胳膊和腿,如何制作临时担架。他们观看了指导员的演示,然后在队内练习。领队选择一些队员假装病倒,其他同学必须把伤员抬上担架送往营地。各队抬着这名“伤员”走了三分之一的路程,剩下路程所有学生徒步至目的地,并绕道返回营地。实际的徒步距离大约5.8公里,其中需绕过岩石嶙峋的地势。

Evening saw the students have a simple dinner of instant noodles. All students from the four different House Teams gathered round the camp fire to show off their house performances. Students were all in high spirits and many students went in front of the fire to sing songs or dance. Finally, a winner was voted for by the teachers and the camp leaders to be the yellow Eagles for their creativity in using shadows in their performance. The runner up was the red Kingfishers for their use of tribal elements. There was an optional supper of sweet potatoes roasted by the camp fire and again phones were returned to the students for around 35mins of use. Students were chased back into their tents around 10:30pm for lights out but the distant barking of dogs and the heavy pitter patter of rain drops on the tents some time later added to the music of the night.

同学们当天的晚餐是简单煮食方便面。之后,四个团队的所有同学都围聚在营地篝火展现他们团队的表演。同学们个个热情高涨,很多同学来到篝火前载歌载舞。最后,根据老师和营地指导员的投票,黄鹰队以精妙光影打造的创意表演成为赢家,亚军是融合部落元素的红翠鸟队。营地篝火中准备有烤红薯的加餐。表演结束之后,同学们有大约35分钟的手机使用时间。十点半熄灯时间,学生们被唤回帐篷,深夜中依稀听到远处的犬吠声,还有雨滴敲击帐篷发出的噼噼啪啪的声响。

Sunday, 13th November

The last morning of the camp was full of action once the rain had stopped. The students readied their tents and backpacks, had team discussions about their final speeches and then had another simple breakfast. After breakfast the House Teams took turns giving speeches on why their house deserved to win overall. The Yellow Eagles emerged the overall winners even though the red Kingfishers were considered the winners of the speeches as they showed great reflection on all the activities covered in their speeches. Finally it was packing up time and after taking a few group photos, everyone took the coach back to school. Along the way back, students talked about their reflections over the whole camp experience. Among the most memorable events were the killing and preparation of chickens, the shouting of house slogans and the campfire performances. Everybody came away from the camp with new skills, new horizons and above all, precious memories.

周日,11月13号

露营最后一天的早上,雨停了,同学们也忙碌了起来,收拾帐篷,打包睡袋。之后,每队都开始积极讨论准备接下来的部落酋长竞选演讲。简单早饭之后,每队都依次做了拉票演说陈述为何本队能赢得本次露营。最后,黄鹰队以最为完整的小组总结与反思获得了第一名,红翠鸟队位居第二。最后,大家一起合影留念,背上行囊,乘坐大巴安全抵达学校,顺利完成了此次户外露营之旅。归途中,同学们还津津乐道于露营中的各样有趣的经历,意犹未尽。最难忘的活动当属捕杀草鸡,呼喊部落口号和篝火表演。每个人都在这次露营中学到了不少技能,也开拓了视野,这些林林总总都汇成了珍贵的回忆。
