The cub camporee took place in Srimangal. To get there, we first travelled from Dhaka to Sylhet. From Sylhet, we took a train to Srimangal. 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 played 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.
