The annual school camping is a part of every student's life starting fourth grade. Macky just came back from a 3-day camping this afternoon and he looks really different, I mean his skin is a little darker and he has a pimple on his face. Our little boy will soon me a young man before we even realized it. :(
I believe that allowing kids to attend school activities such as school camping will help them learn many things as this is one way of letting them taste a little independence and do things with their friends. Exposing them to this kind of events encourages them to explore and learn things on their own without somebody watching them with caution.

This is already Macky's second time to attend school camping, the first one was a bigger event held outside their school last year. I can still remember how Mama almost spank him when he came back from the camp because of the stuff he lost. My mom vowed to never let Macky attend school camping once again but I told her that it is part or maybe the consequence of learning. You learn something while losing some of your things. :)
