When I was in the car on the way to camp, I was really nervous because I hadn’t stayed away from home without my Mum and Dad for that long. But I still knew that I was going to have lots of fun because we always do on camp.
The first activity I went on was the water slide. I thought it was going to be freezing so I was nervous. But I realised afterwards I had gone down that it wasn’t that cold . When I got back up, I decided to go a couple more times. Then I felt quite cold so I got off. But I was thankful that I got on.
That night we went on the Burma Trail. I guessed it was going to be scary. But at the end I reckon it wasn’t the scariest thing I have ever been on. I suppose it was quite cool after all. I learnt that it is good to use teamwork on Burma Trail.
We also made Bivouacs. It was really fun. We made carpet out of toi toi which was really soft. After we had been collecting toi toi, I looked down and saw cuts on my legs. Then I remembered that Keeli was trying to help but by mistake she pushed me into the cutty grass and that's how I got the cuts on my legs.
I think that this year’s camp was the best camp I have been on so far. I would definitely go again. I think that others should go there as well. I think that camp is a great opportunity to make new friends.
