Saturday 22nd of July was the day of PortAventura and Costa Caribe and the students didn’t have English classes! We woke up at quarter past seven and had a quick breakfast before going back to the room to pack everything. Some students chose not to go to PortAventura or Costa Caribe, perhaps because they had been before, they stayed in the house and played games with the monitors. These students woke up at half past eight.
We arrived at the Park all together and divided in three groups. One was going to Costa Caribe and two were going to PortAventura. Once the entrance photo was done, we entered the park and had too many options of where to go first.
In Costa Caribe, the first group put sunscreen on. Costa Caribe is a water park with many fun slides and exciting swimming pools. There is even a river flowing that transports you through the park! We had so much fun on the slides and even got a sun tan.
In PortAventura, the two groups were divided by their ages to ensure they went to the rides that most suited each student. Some of us wen to Shambhala 2 times! We were so happy to share this experience with the other students in the camp, we changed pais for the rides and even bought a souvenir.
At home, the children went to the pool where they played games and refreshed a little. Afterwards, they ate lunch and watched a film in the theatre with pillows and blankets. In the afternoon, while waiting for the Porta Aventura and Costa Caribe students, the students played many games with our monitors, directors and MP’s and had so much fun together.
At 8 p.m., two buses arrived and the Vallclara students were all back together. At night, we had a very special dinner: Barbecue! We ate ribs, frankfurt, cooked potatoes and more. This Saturday was also the time to say goodbye to the students that were with us this week and that were leaving on Sunday. The monitors announced the World Championship winners and the teachers gave the certificates to the best in class and the most improved to the students that were leaving. After the awards, we danced some of th songs of the term and hugged and kissed each other because it was time to say goodbye. There were mixed feelings that night: sadness because some of us were leaving and happiness for the fun and laughs that we shared together.
Good night Vallclara!
