Unit 21 It Was a Great Day!
A. Listen and read.
I went to a cub camporee. It was my first visit to a cub camporee and it was my first time away from home! A camporee is a
gathering of cubs from different parts of Bangladesh. Cubs all over the world have their own camporees.
The cub camporee took place in Sreemangal under Moulvibazar district. Toget there, we travelled from Dhaka to Sreemangal by train. We arrived in the morning, so the weather was nice. We walked to our camp from the train station.
There were 10 of us and two leaders. We were a big group, so we didn't take any rickshaws. We walked together in our group. It wasn't very far. At the camp, we cleaned up the area, set up our tents and prepared our breakfast. After breakfast, we p
layed games with cubs from other parts of Bangladesh. Then we had lunch. We cooked rice and chicken. In the afternoon and evening, we sang songs and recited poems. It was fun! At night, we slept in our tents.
The next day, after the camporee, we went to Lowachara National Park, It was very interesting. We took a walk beside a small stream in the forest. Our leaders told us to be very quiet because the animals are frightened by noise. We walked quietly up a small hill, and suddenly we heard something in the trees above our heads. We looked up and saw a gibbon. It was moving quickly through the trees.
