Camping is fun. I remember sleeping in tents. I remember cooking food over a

campfire. Even rice with sardine sambal and nothing else tested delicious! I
remember sitting around fire, telling stories. I remember the millions of stars in
the sky twinkling good night.
Wherever you camp, respect the environment. Take nothing but
photographs. Leave nothing but footprints. Never leave an open fire burning.
Always pick up your rubbish and take it away with you. Dont throw rubbish into
rivers or streams. Do you know that climbers of Mount Everest left a ton of
rubbish behind!
When you camp, you bond with nature. You enjoy fresh air, clean water
and beautiful scenery. You feel natures breath in gentle winds. You learn to
appreciate nature. So do not spoil it by leaving rubbish behind. Leave the camp
grounds clean for someone else to enjoy them too.


The writer recalls reading about a camping experience.

The writers experience about camping is most pleasant.
The writer remembers camping on a dark cloudy night.
Paragraph 2 tells you about the dos and donts of a camping trip.
Paragraph 3 tells you about the benefits of being outdoors.
The writer is angry with the climbers of Mount Everest who left behind a lot of rubbish.
We respect the environment by stepping on everything and leaving footprints.
We respect the environment by taking our rubbish home.
Bonding with nature means appreciating nature.
