This essay can take many turns but I were you, i would write this essay like this.
start with when you are trekking with your friends or family and suddenly you get lost. You weren't paying attention and now you are surrounded with nothing but acres and acres of woods. Terrified, you start doing what a lost camper does. Start a fire and maybe shout out for help. Try to get your phone signal but it's no use. Then you try using stuff like a compass or a map if you have one and find your way out. Maybe you can say you encountered threats from wild animals and no kidding, that would be really cool.
