My reflect on my camp goals

My camp goals were to give positive feed back or advice and manage my belongings.i gave positive feedback When kaylana made it to the top of the rock climbing tower and I high fived her and said well done and the same with Fraser because he made it to the top of the rock climbing tower too.i wasn't so good with my belongings because I lost my sleeping bag case I might need to work on managing my belongings a little bit longer.
