Camp writing

Today I am going to be writing a story about my trip at Kawau Island. I Hope you enjoy.

!!Guess!! What!! On Tuesday the 15th of November the year 6s at Pt England went to“Camp Bentzon on” Kawau Island.

When we arrived at Kawau Island the first thing we did was unpack all our suit cases and big bags out of the ferry. On the first day we went for a long Hike up Killer Hill. Its called Killer Hill because a girl slipped and bumped into a teacher called Mr Jacobsen and Mr Jacobsen bumped into another teacher called Mr Barks. After a while I asked my teacher Mr Somerville a question and the question was “Where are we going”? and my teacher said “To the other side of Camp Bentzon”

After the hike my legs were screaming out and and I was sweating heaps.After the hike, we arrived at the beach and when we arrived we ate lunch and then went to go skim some rocks. A half an hour later we hiked back to Camp Bentzon. On the next day of camp we woke up at 6:30am and went for a run the run was a bit easy but we were lucky because it was all downhill but then on the other hand it was slippery.When we came back from the run we had breakfast. For breakfast we had hot food and cold food, the food was delicious.

Our first activity of the day was Abseiling. First for Abseiling we had to put our harness on and then next we had to put your helmet on. After we put our harness and helmet on Justus was first to climb up the 8 meter wall. Next was Richard, then me. 😓 Ohhhh gosh I was so scared. My heart was beating as I climbed up and then down the wall. Finally it was all over.

Our next activity was Kayaking. First we had morning tea and for morning tea we had biscuits and fruit. For our biscuits we had all sorts of biscuits for example we had Chocolate, Strawberry and heaps of other flavours.

After that my group went to get changed into our togs then we headed down to the beach. We all grabbed a paddle and a kayak and pushed the kayak into the water. We jumped into the kayak and kayaked to the pontoon the water was rough and the breeze was windy, it was difficult to paddle. As I was kayaking a saw a baby stingray. After we kayaked to to the pontoon we kayaked to stingray bay. While we were at Stingray bay we saw a couple of stingrays.

Next was lunch, for lunch we had Hotdogs and fruit. On my Hotdog I had a sausage,Lettuce,onions and sauce . Lunch was delicious.

After lunch our next activity was Raft Building. We went down to the beach and grabbed four barrels, ropes and sticks . Before we started building we went to go look and what the raft should look like then we ran back to where all our stuff was. The girls built there’s together and the boys built there’s together. As we were building our rafts I looked over at the boys and noticed that the boys were winning. After we finished building the rafts, the boys raft was the one we tested and we were the only group that made it over to the pontoon and back.

We did a few more activities after that and then it was time for dinner for dinner we  had  Spaghetti bolognaise and for dessert we had different flavors of ice cream, jelly, waffa’s and chocolate sauce. Delicious, after dinner we played spotlight.

First we got changed into dark clothes,brush our teeth, got our torches and then meet at the deck. Once we all got back to the deck Mr Jacobsen explained the rules and once he was finished telling the rules he said “I spray and walk away” and that meant we had to go away and hide. Spotlight was fun.

The two best parts of camp was  when we all got to see a pod of Orca’s when we were sailing. And the next best part was eating dinner,lunch,morning tea and breakfast. Because the food was Perfect.

Thanks to all the teachers who took us on camp, and big thanks to Peter and Erin for letting us come to the beautiful Camp Benson.

                                       BEST CAMP EVER
