My name is Pvt. Clark, Alexandra, and I am 10 years old. The Young Marines is a great place for discipline and respect, but we also have fun, too.
In August 2019, The Capital City Young Marines had an awesome trip to Roan Mountain in Tennessee.
The trip lasted through the weekend, and had many activities. In the first evening, we set the tents and the camp and we got rest while we took turns for firewatch. Early in the morning, we woke up and did P.T. and got ready for our adventures. First we went to a farm called Banner Elk Stables to go horseback riding. We learned to ride the horses and also to use a lasso.
After we left the farm, we went back to the camp and played lots of games. In the afternoon, we went hiking on Roan Mountain, and in the evening we had a bonfire.
The next day, in the morning, we did P.T., and then we took down the camp. Later, we went on a hike, and we got to a Hebron Colony Falls where we played in the water and we had lots of fun. This was a very nice way to end the beautiful trip.
Being in the Young Marines is very good because it teaches us a lot of good things and
discipline, but also we can have lots of fun.
