We went on the water slide the day we got to Camp Cheerio. Yay! We had lunch first (it was soooo good!), and quickly changed into our bathing suits. I was so excited. Everyone got their lifejackets and rushed over to the top of the slide. I was ready to go! But then, I heard someone at the front of the line. It was because one the counselors was spraying us with ice cold water before we went down the slide. As the line got shorter and shorter, I started to get a little scared, not because of going down the slide but the feeling of COLD water. It was finally my turn. The counselor seemed like she didn’t care how cold we were. She sprayed me thoroughly and said GO! It all happened so quickly. I mean, it’s just a water slide. It is not a big deal! So I thought the lake water would be at least a little warmer but it was the EXACT same as the hose water. I felt like my body froze, but I had to hurry and get out, pushing through the green water. I only went two more times, and then I took a WARM shower.
